Professor Graeme Clark is the Professor of the Department of
Otolaryngology at the University of Melbourne. It is the pioneering
work of his university
department that led to the first multi-channel research implant “bionic
ear” being “switched on” in 1978 and the first Nucleus implant in 1982.
His lifelong commitment to finding a solution for the hearing impaired
has resulted in a revolution not only for those with a profound hearing
loss but also their family and friends.
