About Us
iota Biosciences, Inc. is an early-stage medical device company dedicated to bringing novel bioeletronic devices to market. Bioelectronic devices are the start of a an entirely new form of medicine, where miniature devices treat chronic diseases through mechanisms like electrical stimulation or collect disease diagnostics at a specificity or frequency not previously possible.
Iota’s core technology stack enables a custom ultrasound wand to communicate with and power custom implantable devices, eliminating the need for wires or batteries and making it possible to produce tiny medical implants. This product concept is based on the ground-breaking “neural dust” technology initially developed at UC Berkeley. From this academic proof of concept, iota Biosciences is developing a family of miniscule yet effective and manufacturable medical products.
