UBC-Rogers Collaborative Research Project on Tele-Ultrasound Wins Prestigious Best Paper Award

Electrical and Computer Engineering PhD candidate David Black and his supervisor Professor Tim Salcudean have won the Best Paper Award at the 14th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics held June 26-29, 2022 at the Royal Geographical Society. Their paper, “A Mixed Reality System for Human Teleoperation in Tele-Ultrasound,” emerged from collaborative researchs enabled by the UBC-Rogers partnership on 5G research and development.

The annual symposium is the highlight event of the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, at Imperial College London. It provides a forum for international surgeons and engineers to network and share the latest developments in medical robotics, attracting world-leading scientists, engineers and clinical practitioners from a wide range of disciplines associated with medical robotics and surgery.
