Summer students presented projects at UARE Research Symposium for visiting interns
Endowed Research Chair in Surgical Simulation in the Department of Surgery.
Since more and more advanced technologies are introduced to the operating theatre, surgeons face new challenges in maintaining their confidence under image-guided and remote-controlled environment. Equipped with eye-tracking and 3D motion tracking system, Dr. Zheng studies the eye-hand coordination, spatial orientation, and the skills acquisition process of surgeons in image-guided surgeries, including laparoscopic, endoscopic and robotic surgery.
We collaborate with surgeons, computing scientists, and psychologists to develop simulation and simulation-based programs for surgical training.
Differing to most medical researchers focusing on patients and their health problems, Dr. Bin Zheng puts surgeons under the spotlight.
Our research aims to shorten the learning curve of surgeons using simulation and strengthen their competence in performing image-guided surgeries.
