The 2019 Academic Forum of Institute of Medical Robotics will be held in the Translational Medicine Building Minhang Campus of Shanghai Jiao Tong University from December 9 to 13. The forum invites government leaders, well-known experts, young scholars and business elites from all over the world, who will report and present the latest research progress in the field of medical robotics and also discuss the technical challenges and future development trends. It aims to promote collaborative innovations among governments, academic institutions, hospitals and enterprises as well as boost the international academic exchanges and cooperation in the field of medical robotics.
The Institute of Medical Robotics in Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) is a multidisciplinary platform established by SJTU in 2017 to advance the field of medical robotics and related technologies with emphasis on benefitting patients and creating socio-economic values. This top-level institute operates directly under SJTU and works closely with other academic schools/departments. The main research directions include the fundamental research in micro/nano systems, perception and cognition, bioinspired systems, and smart materials, as well as the applied research in surgical robotics, rehabilitation and assistive robotics, image-guided intervention, brain-computer interaction, microelectronics, implantables and neuro-interfaces, biophotonics, and precision mechatronics. By leveraging the unique strength of SJTU's medical school and affiliated hospitals, the institute has also established joint clinical research centers for targeted diseases.
