Dr. Kip Ludwig joined NINDS in 2011 as a Program Director in Repair and Plasticity. Dr. Ludwig received his Ph.D. in Bioengineering at the University of Michigan, followed by post-doctoral work at the same institution. Dr. Ludwig’s academic work focused on neural decoding algorithms for brain-computer interfaces (BCI), signal processing techniques to denoise neural recordings, and advance materials to improve the chronic stimulating and recording performance of microelectrodes. More recently, Dr. Ludwig worked in industry as a research scientist, where he and his team conceived, developed and demonstrated the chronic efficacy of a next-generation neural stimulation electrode for reducing blood pressure in both pre-clinical and clinical trials. Through his industry work, he oversaw good laboratory practice (GLP) and non-GLP studies supporting both European and FDA Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) human trials, as well as participated in the protocol development and execution of those trials. Dr. Ludwig’s interest is in all aspects of neural engineering, with special emphases on neuromodulation, BCI devices, and neural interface technology development.
