The Institute of Medical Robotics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (IMR@SJTU) has been established to harness the latest advances in robotics and allied technologies to transform the future of surgery, rehabilitation and hospital automation. Its founding dean, Professor Guang-Zhong Yang, an internationally renowned scholar in robotics and the founding editor of Science Robotics, has led a concerted effort to promote robotics research, education, technological development and clinical translation, by leveraging the unique engineering strength, basic science research and the strong clinical base of Shanghai.
Committed to providing solutions for early diagnosis and personalised treatment of major illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, the IMR@SJTU is focusing its research on the development of agile, intelligent, and minimally invasive medical robotics technologies. The vision of the IMR@SJTU is to promote cross-disciplinary collaboration to accelerate the translation of research results, develop new talents and forge international collaboration.
The Institute aims to drive novel, underpinning technologies in medical robotics and spearhead research innovation and development of new medical equipment with robotics and machine intelligence at its core. It is also building a multidisciplinary talent and business incubation base for aspiring young professionals, supporting bench-to-bed transformation of new robotics technologies. With its mission to support clinical translation, the IMR@SJTU is partnering with leading teaching hospitals in Shanghai to establish joint research centres focussing on different clinical specialties. New breakthroughs are already emerging in the use of medical robots for urological, cardiopulmonary, oral and craniofacial diseases, as well as assistive robots based on soft exoskeletons. The Institute is making significant inroads in the development of new micro-nano robotics technologies by integrating micro-actuation, imaging, sensing and endoluminal therapy and drug delivery. The Institute is also broadening its international collaboration through regular research exchange with world-renowned research institutions and organisation of international conferences, academic forums and competitions. It aims to be a global hub for medical robotics and applied research towards successful clinical adoption and commercialisation.
