Canan Dagdeviren holds a MiNDS device, surrounded by Robert Langer (from left), Ann Graybiel, and Michael Cima, the leaders of the team developing MiNDS, the Miniaturized Neuronal Drug Delivery System, seen here in Cima's lab at the Koch Institute For Integrative Cancer Research at MIT in Cambridge, Mass., USA, on Tues., Dec. 5, 2017. The device is an implantable drug delivery system; two pumps at the bottom (white oval shapes dangling at bottom) can be wirelessly controlled to deliver drugs as specified through the needle at the top. Langer is the David H. Koch Institute Professor at MIT. Graybiel is an Investigator at the McGovern Institute, an Institute Professor at MIT, and a Professor in MIT's Department of Braing and Cognitive Sciences. Dagdeviren is Assistant Professor of Media Arts and Sciences and LG Career Development Professor of Media Arts and Sciences at MIT and director of the Conformable Decoders research group at the MIT Media Lab. Cima is David H. Koch Professor of Engineering at the Koch Institute at MIT.
