Ben Woodington

PhD candidate at Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge


Ben has a background in chemistry and sensor engineering, his current PhD research focuses on bioelectronic medicine, where he works at the intersection of electrical engineering and clinical neuroscience at the University of Cambridge.

Prior to starting his PhD, he worked in medical device research, where he focused on developing and launching novel drug delivery devices for respiratory health, with products being deployed in the US and European markets.

His current research explores how we can better interface electronics with the spinal cord, looking at applications in pain management and the treatment of spinal cord injury. He has an interest in translating these technologies and others to clinic, to improve and change the standard of care.
