About the Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation

Introduction

The Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation is a nationally unique resource for research, education, and translation in imaging and image-guided interventions. Located in the heart of Johns Hopkins Hospital and formed in collaboration between the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Neurosurgery, the Center  provides a synergistic co-location of expertise to identify major clinical needs, drive development of new technology, translate advances to clinical use, and cultivate the next generation of engineers and clinicians.

The Carnegie Mission

The Carnegie mission includes activity in:

Research - advances in surgical techniques employing intraoperative imaging and computer assistance for improved surgical precision and quality.

Education - undergraduate and graduate education in engineering as well as training of medical residents and fellows.

Translation - accelerating the translation of research to first clinical studies and the transfer of innovations to broader commercial availability.
