Abstract / Description: 

Stanford Medical Mixed Reality (SMMR) invites you to their next virtual panel discussion series about groundbreaking mixed reality technology and innovation in medicine and how it impacts patients, clinicians, and the healthcare industry.

The event will start with a one-hour panel discussion featuring Prof. Allison Okamura, director of Stanford's Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine (CHARM) Lab; Dr. Danny Goel of PrecisionOS, a Vancouver-based company developing a VR surgical training platform; Craig Douglass of Contact CI, a Cincinnati-based company developing a haptic glove for immersive technologies; and Govinda Payyavula ofIntuitive Surgical, a Bay Area-based company and leader in robotic surgery systems. This panel will be moderated by Dr. Joel Sadler, an XR founder and technologist, and Dr. Christoph Leuze of the Stanford Medical Mixed Reality (SMMR) program. Immediately following the panel discussion, you are also invited to a 30-minute interactive session with the panelists where questions and ideas can be explored in real time.

Stanford Medical Mixed Reality (SMMR) is dedicated to building community across Stanford Medicine together with global industry leaders and academia focusing on medical virtual and augmented reality technology. Founded by the Incubator for Medical Mixed and Extended Reality at Stanford (IMMERS) Lab, we aim to bring together leading researchers, clinicians and engineers to share work, exchange ideas, collaborate and discuss opportunities and challenges. The SMMR Panel Discussion Series highlights labs around Stanford working in this area and focuses on particular topics such as surgical guidance, VR-based therapy, and training & education.
