Institutional Translation Partnership Award: Robotic Surgery (360G-Wellcome-208857_Z_17_Z)

Surgical robotics is an ever-expanding area of innovation and development internationally, spearheading evolution in precision medicine. Access to increasingly small and remote anatomies, characterisation of cellular and molecular information in-situ, in-vivo, and targeted therapy with increased precision are major drivers of the future generation of surgical robots. The purpose of this partnership is to capitalise on the timely evolution in the imaging, sensing and robotics research programmes currently being conducted within the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery and to address research and clinical translational challenges of precision surgery, focusing on knowledge transfer between academic research, industry, and clinical practice. Through a pioneering new model of academic translation, this partnership will stimulate Imperial's multidisciplinary academic community in surgical robotics, driving the progression of a portfolio of new medical engineering products
