In the MED lab, our research is primarily in surgical robotics and on other devices to make surgery less invasive and more accurate.  For more information (and videos!) about our research, click on the research tab above.

The MED lab is a laboratory in the Mechanical Engineering department at Vanderbilt University, and is a charter member of the Vanderbilt Initiative in Surgery and Engineering.
