A blade of grass that sparked an innovation
Threading a blade of grass into a seashell — and inspired by his deaf father — Australian Professor Graeme Clark unlocked the secret to positioning an implant inside a human cochlea.
In 2013, Professor Clark won the Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award for his vision in using medical intervention to restore the sense of hearing to thousands of people.
Since implanting Rod Saunders with the world's first multi-channel cochlear implant in 1978, we've seen the smiles of more than 450,000 people the moment they've been able to hear again — or for the first time. And we're just getting started.
