On Wednesday 2nd April 13:00, Dr. Brett Bell from the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research, Image-Guided Microsurgery, University of Bern will give a presentation entitled “Inroads to Minimally Invasive CI Surgery” in the ICCAS seminar room.
Dr. Brett Bell received a BS in mechanical engineering from Utah State University in 2003. He then began a direct PhD program Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University where he investigated biopolymers and cell biomechanics. Since 2010, Dr. Bell has been head of the Robotic Surgery group, first at the Institute of Surgical Technology and Biomechanics (ISTB) and then at the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering, Bern.
Currently, Dr. Bell is investigating various aspects of a clinical implementation of a surgical robot system for minimally invasive cochlear implantation including safety, surgical workflow, and non-invasive registration.
