Electroceuticals, also termed bioelectronic medicines, describe high-resolution interfaces to record, stimulate or block activity in the autonomic nervous system. These approaches applied to peripheral nerves innovating the lower urinary tract offer the promise to treat neurourological dysfunction including overactive bladder and detrusor underactivity / urinary retention.

Warren M Grill is Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. His research is in neural engineering and neuromodulation with applications to restoration of bladder function, deep brain stimulation, and treatment of pain. He has published over 170 articles and awarded 38 US patents. Dr. Grill serves on the editorial boards of Brain Stimulation, J Neural Engineering, and Current Opinion in Biomedical Engineering. He is Fellow of American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Society, in 2014 received the Duke University Scholar/Teacher of the Year, and was awarded an NIH Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award in 2015.
