NeuroOne Welcomes Dr. Diaz-Botia as the Director of Electrode Development

Join us in welcoming Dr. Camilo Andres Diaz-Botia, a highly experienced senior level neural engineer whose work has focused on the development of technologies for bidirectional communication with the nervous system, as director of Electrode Development.

Camilo led the microfabrication process engineering team at Neuralink Corp., a Company founded by Elon Musk, working on developing a high bandwidth brain machine interface.

Camilo’s in-depth knowledge and expertise in the design of implantable thin film electrodes and experience at Neuralink, from research and development to manufacturing, will expand the depth and breadth of our capabilities to further develop NeuroOne’s portfolio of thin film electrode technology.

Key Player in Company’s Future

As we continue to pursue our vision of developing combination diagnostic and therapeutic electrode technology, we expect Camilo’s leadership and experience will contribute significantly to helping us achieve these goals.

At Neuralink Corp., Camilo led and mentored the process engineering team to deliver projects with unique microfabrication processes. Under his direction, the team built and designed novel processes for integration of thin film neural probes with brain machine interface systems.

He earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Universidad Nacional de Colombia and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the joint program at the University of California Berkeley and the University of California San Francisco.

During his graduate studies, he conducted research on microfabricated thin film neural interfaces for chronic implants developing electrocorticography arrays with silicon carbide, a material suitable for long-term performance in harsh environments, and electrode arrays for minimally invasive subcortical recordings.

He has authored and co-authored multiple peer reviewed scientific articles published in journals including Journal of Neural Engineering, Neuron and Lab-on-a-Chip.

Significant Impact on Patient Experience

For many years, thin film technologies have been utilized in academic settings and have matured enough to address several clinical needs today.

We look forward to working with Camilo in the further development of NeuroOne’s thin film electrodes and believe he will play a critical role in helping us make thin film devices commercially available.
