Professor Jim Patrick AO - Chief Scientist - Emeritus, Cochlear Limited- Adjunct Professor at Macquarie University
Jim Patrick, one of the original engineers who pioneered the development of the multi-channel cochlear implant with Professor Graeme Clark, is today recognised as a world authority on cochlear implants. He joined Professor Graeme Clark' s research team at Melbourne University in 1975. With training in physics and communications engineering, and an interest in how electrical stimulation might be used to help people hear, he led the successful development of "UMDOLEE", the ten channel cochlear implant developed by the Departments of Otolaryngology and Electrical Engineering.

Since 1981 Jim has been a member of Cochlear's senior management team, holding a number of technology management roles, including responsibility for Research and Development, Quality and Manufacturing.
Currently, Jim is responsible for Cochlear's global research programme, exploring how novel forms of signal proces sing can improve the performance of the cochlear implant, and how advances in biology and electro-neural
interfaces can be applied to future implant designs.
