09/05/18:Our proposed collaborative research to develop a new class of 3D printed magneto-electroactive soft, continuum, compliant, and configurable (MESo-C3) mesoscale robotic devices has recently been awarded with a total of $1,999,910 by the Emerging Frontiers & Multidisciplinary Activities (EFMA) of the National Science Foundation (NSF). The vision of this four-year collaborative project between the University of Utah, the University of Minnesota, and Santa Clara University is to extend the capabilities of clinicians by enabling minimally invasive access to locations in the human body that are currently difficult or impossible to reach using a new class of 3D printed mesoscale robotic devices for a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The project is led by Professor Jake Abbot and in collaboration with Professor Kam Leang, Professor Yong Lin Kong (University of Utah), Professor Rajesh Rajamani (University of Minnesota), and Professor On Shun Pak (Santa Clara University).
