Professor Graeme Clark AC Lasker Laureate
The Graeme Clark Institute for Biomedical Engineering is proud to be named in honour of Professor Graeme Clark AC Lasker Laureate.
Professor Clark pioneered one of the world’s greatest biomedical engineering achievements, the multi-channel cochlear implant or bionic ear – the first device to allow severely-to-profoundly deaf people understand speech and the first restoration of a human sense.
His groundbreaking achievements encapsulate the vision of the Graeme Clark Institute for Biomedical Engineering – to transform healthcare through biomedical engineering solutions that deliver global health, societal and economic benefits.
