Dr. Ludwig is the Co-Director of the Wisconsin Institute for Translational Neuroengineering (WITNe) and leads the Ludwig Laboratory at UW-Madison where his primary focus is on next-generation neuromodulation therapies that use minimally invasive strategies to hack the nervous system to treat circuit dysfunction. Prior to this, he was the Program Director for Neural Engineering at the National Institutes of Health, led the NIH BRAIN Initiative programs, and led a trans-NIH planning team in developing the ~250 million dollar S.P.A.R.C. Program to stimulate advances in neuromodulation therapies. He has also worked in industry on the chronic efficacy of a next-generation neural stimulation electrode for reducing blood pressure and has overseen clinical trials in both Europe and the United States. With vast experience in research, academic, and industry, Dr. Ludwig will be presenting on how he has taken multiple products from ideation into profitable, substantially impactful companies.
