Dr Eric Daniel Glowacki is a research group leader at the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC) located in Brno, Czech Republic. There he studies neural implant fabrication and materials specializing in silicon, parylene, and polyimide devices. He has also started to designs and fabricate devices on a contract basis for other research groups and companies.
And, his institute is the one that has been recently sponsoring the podcast!
This podcast is sponsored by CEITEC Nano, check out their Neurotech Device Manufacturing Capabilities here
