Graeme Clark was presented with the 'Australian of the year' award in 2001.
Graeme Clark discovered how to code speech with electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve and brain pathways to restore hearing to tens of thousands of severely-to-profoundly deaf people in more than 100 countries.
The Cochlear implant is considered the greatest advance in helping severely-to-profoundly deaf adults to hear, and for deaf children it is the greatest advance in enabling them to develop excellent spoken language.
