About us

The Surgical and Interventional Robotics Group is part of the Translational Technologies Group ( at Center for Inflammation Research, Institute of Regeneration and Repair. Our mission is to develop therapeutic/diagnostic robotic instruments for a wide range of medical applications. Our research typically focuses on the clinical problem first and works with surgeons and clinicians to determine the best devices and theoretical approaches to solve it, which may be new robots or novel algorithms.

Broadly speaking, the Surgical and Interventional Robotics Group at the University of Edinburgh conducts research under the following themes:

  • Design and development of Surgical Robots
  • Mechanics-based Modeling and Simulation
  • Medical image guidance
  • Applications of Control Theory and AI in Robotics
