NeuroLens’ Demo at NSF Meetings

Our NeuroLens project has gained a tremendous amount of publicity in the last two months, presented as a demo at NSF’s congressional showcase at Capitol Hill as a part of NSF Athena AI Institute (left picture), and also at NSF Computing Systems Research (CSR) PI meeting (right picture). In the left picture below, NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan is placing a catheter to the brain ventricular system using our AR guidance system, wearing a Microsoft HoloLens 2 (LinkedIn posts about this demo can be found here: NSF’s Post , Dr. Gorlatova’s Post). Very grateful for the opportunity to present our system to a diverse audience at those meetings!

Research Talks

In the past two weeks, I have given research talks about Augmented Reality in Surgical Applications at the WiSE lab, Prof. Anthony Rowe’s group at CMU (6/15), and Duke’s REU seminar (6/21). The talk covered the development of AR-assisted surgical guidance systems for applications in neurosurgery and ophthalmology.

NeuroLens Featured in Duke ECE Magazine

Our work on NeuroLens is featured in Duke’s 2022 ECE Magazine as a part of the topics covering the future of the Metaverse. We believe AR/VR/MR plays a crucial role in revolutionizing the medical industries, and it’s wonderful to have our collaborative work with Duke’s School of Medicine acknowledged.
