Dr. Krovi and his Crew Awarded Bruce Holm Catalyst Research Fund

The research grant with Dr. Krovi as the principal investigator (PI) has been awarded with the Bruce Holm Catalyst Research Fund. The Co-PIs on this project include our research collaborators-- Dr. Pankaj Singhal, Asst. Prof in Gyn/Onc Dept at the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and Dr. Jason J Corso, Asst. Prof in the Dept. of Computer Science Eng. The proposal submitted by Dr.Krovi and his crew was one among the five research groups selected to receive this fund from UB (Bruce Holm Catalyst Fund). The financial support is intended to move promising technologies, developed within engineering and scientific research labs, closer to the market for possible commercialization. The proposal that was submitted by Dr. Krovi & Co. is based on our current progress on surgical skill assessment. In particular, this work proposes to focus on re-purposing video-based micro-motion analysis in order to improve training for doctors performing robotic surgeries, as well as to serve as a tool in evaluating proficiency. We in ARMLAB congratulate Dr.Krovi and his team for their commendable efforts.
