Medical robotics has been instrumental in revolutionizing medical diagnosis and therapy for the past few decades. However, there are significant gaps in healthcare delivery for both adult and pediatric populations! The Georgia Center for Medical Robotics (GCMR) brings together people with expertise in several areas of medicine as well as technology development from the nano-scale to macro-scale. One of its unique features is that it addresses the needs of both adult and pediatric population.
GCMR is highly interdisciplinary, comprised of colleagues from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), and Morehouse School of Medicine. GCMR serves as a catalyst to advance research in medical robotics and form new research partnerships. GCMR is involved in a wide variety of research areas, including but not limited to: surgical robotics, pediatric robotics, image-guided interventions, imaging, rehabilitation and assistive robotics, prosthetics, human augmentation, and diagnostics and therapeutics spanning different length scales.
Our vision is to be an international leader in Medical Robotics through fundamental research and development.
Our mission is to research, develop, validate and translate into clinical use innovative technologies, address critical challenges, develop personalized tools relating to diagnostics and therapeutics, and improve patient quality of life.
