Whiz Kids: Using haptics for surgical simulation

In an earlier post, I highlighted one very impressive augmented-reality project from the the Clinical Anatomy Research Scholars (CARS) program at Stanford. Through CARS, 15 lucky interns are invited to campus to conduct research alongside professors in a variety of fields, including medicine, surgical simulation, robots, and biomedical visualization.

Over the next week, I'll be highlighting more video presentations from the students. In this video, high-school student Matthew Miller talks about his project studying how haptic technologies might improve surgical simulation.

This video has also been entered in NPR's "What's Your Big Idea?" video contest. You can get a sense of the videos submitted from NPR's contest playlist.

The CARS program is based in the Division of Clinical Anatomy and is directed by W. Paul Brown, DDS.

Stanford immunologist pushes field to shift its research focus from mice to humans

Much of what we know about the immune system comes from experiments conducted on mice.  But lab mice are not little human beings. The two species are separated by both physiology and  lifestyles. Stanford immunologist Mark Davis is calling on his colleagues to shift their research focus to people.
