Changing Lives with Science

When 13 Aug, 2019 5:30pm — 7:00pm Where The Shine Dome, Gordon Street, Acton Website

As the driving force behind the development of the cochlear implant, Professor Graeme Clark’s science has profoundly changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people for the better. Growing up, he witnessed his deaf father’s desire for greater connection with others. This experience gave him a goal—to find a way to help the deaf hear—and motivated him through decades of challenging research that continues to this day.


Graeme will be joined by pioneering nutritionist Professor Jennie Brand-Miller, who received cochlear implants after gradually losing her hearing as a teen. Without them, Jennie says she would not be where she is today: internationally recognised for her ground-breaking work that developed the ‘glycaemic index’, a bestselling author, and an Academy Fellow. Join us as Jennie speaks candidly about her journey with the life-changing science and technology of cochlear implants.
