    VISE affiliates awarded $1.8 million grant to improve surgical guidance during eye surgery

    A team of Vanderbilt University engineers and clinicians have won a five-year $1.8 million National Eye Institute grant to develop and translate novel intraoperative imaging technologies to the ophthalmic surgical suite to enable real-time surgical guidance. “Our group has spent quite a few years working on developing the underlying imaging technology,” said Yuankai Kenny Tao, assistant professor of biomedical engineering and a faculty researcher in the Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering, is the principal investigator. “This grant will support our translational efforts and allow us to identify ophthalmic surgeries that will directly benefit from real-time guidance and to ...
