Goals and Objectives
Students from institutions nationwide, with a focus on women and under-represented minorities and from a wide range of engineering disciplines including electrical, mechanical, biomedical, computer science, and physics will be recruited to participate in the program. These students will contribute to specific research projects pursued by faculty and researchers at the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR). Each student will be a part of a collegial research team, including a faculty project supervisor and a graduate student mentor, and will work on a challenging research project. The projects will be designed to match each student’s interest and to maximize the potential for making a contribution during the session. Some students may contribute to research on medical image registration and fusion or image enhancement and segmentation. Other students will help to develop new robotic devices to help support surgeons in the operating room. Many more projects have been identified and new projects will emerge each year. Participating students may receive instruction on technical communication, oral presentation skills, and research ethics to aid in the completion of the required final research report and presentation. Additional activities will include tours and trips to other labs.
The REU program in Computational Sensing and Medical Robotics(CSMR) is an intensive, ten-week program of laboratory research and instruction, beginning end of May and concluding in early August. Projects are listed by departments including Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science.
The projects hosted by the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR) and the Computer Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology Engineering Research Center (CISST ERC) are funded by the National Science Foundation (number of spots available will be based on funding renewal by NSF). The participants may have an opportunity to be part of a poster session at the end of the program. Candidates will need to be a U.S. Citizen or a U.S. Permanent Resident to be accepted into this program.
