Cha Laboratory

About the Lab

The Vision and Robotics Laboratory, part of the Sheikh Zayed Institute of Pediatric Surgical Innovation, is engaged in several research efforts designed to spur innovation in surgical care. The purpose of the lab is twofold: first, to develop devices that serve an unmet need in the operating room with the goal of reducing complications and improving outcomes; second, to establish an infrastructure within which scientists, engineers and clinicians work together in a close feedback loop to rapidly convert ideas into useable tools.
