Computing and AI for Health, Medicine, and Surgery

New Bucket 3

The conception, development, realization, and evaluation of novel health care solutions require tight interaction between computer science, several engineering disciplines, and clinicians. Areas of interest include:

  • Computer Vision and Augmented/Virtual Reality
  • Medical Devices and Robotics
  • Surgical Skill Assessment and Surgical Processes Modeling
  • Medical Imaging

New CS faculty will join an engineering school with interdisciplinary programs and research centers already at the forefront of imaging, surgery and interventional processes. Among them:

  • Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering (VISE)
  • Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science (VUIIS)
  • Vanderbilt Biophotonics Center 
  • Proximity to VUMC and long history of tight collaborations between scientists and physicians

Collocated with VUMC, Vanderbilt offers an ideal environment for working symbiotically on new solutions to complex interventional problems.
