Congratulations to our own robobiologist Dr Anjali Jaiprakash named a Queensland Young Tall Poppy in this year’s awards.
Dr Jaiprakash has been honoured for excellence in her field of medical robotics and is working on the development of a vision-based robotic leg-manipulation system for knee arthroscopy and a retinal diagnostic system for the early detection of blindness.
“Technology is constantly redefining how we learn, play and interact with this beautiful world around us, but also poses challenges in a way that we never imagined,” Dr Jaiprakash said.
“I believe that the solutions to some of the greatest challenges in today’s world of rapid change are at the intersection of many research fields.
“We embrace novel technologies with a transdisciplinary approach to develop medical devices.
“Our team is working towards translating robotics and vision technologies into affordable systems, and when successful it can have a global reach to improve healthcare outcomes.”
