UNL team to test robotic surgery with NASA Microgravity University
2014 Mar 6With work on surgical robotics happening daily at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering, students will reach new heights -- literally 35,000 feet -- to conduct research for NASA on robotic surgery for space travel. A UNL engineering team will return for its seventh year with NASA's Microgravity University later this spring, this time studying the effects of microgravity on robotic capsule endoscope (RCE) propulsion and tissue adhesion techniques in the small intestine.
