Self-guided Microrobotics for Automated Brain Dissection
This highly interdisciplinary project brings together researchers with expertise in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, engineering and neuroscience to create a new automated microsurgical platform which will be applied to identify and collect NPCs from brain tissues. By exploiting the capacity of deep learning approaches to detect features in complex data sets we will develop two new image-guided microsurgery tools: a microrobotic resector capable of carefully excising the small region of brain tissue (the SVZ) within which NPCs are found and microrobotic cell collector, capable of efficiently harvesting individual cells for further study and analysis using a coordinated array of optoelectronic microrobots. When then aim to integrate these two systems into a single, unique robotic microsurgery platform.
