Congratulations to Jayant Charthad, PhD, and his co-authors on receiving the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems 2020 Best Paper Award.

Jayant's work presents a mm-sized implantable device for the electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves. Using ultrasound as a wireless power transfer and data communication modality, the implant achieved >10x improvement in the ratio of tissue depth to implant volume compared to state-of-the-art systems. The implant includes a custom-designed integrated circuit to enable precise wireless programming of stimulation parameters. The device could have applications in the treatment of a range of conditions such as epilepsy, autoimmune diseases, chronic pain, and urinary urge incontinence.
