Image-guided robotic delivery of ocular treatments laboratory (IR.)
Dr. Andrea Curatolo
THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
The IR. laboratory seeks to research novel techniques and develop instrumentation to address unanswered questions in vision science and unmet needs in ophthalmology and optometry. The IR. team brings the experience and translational know-how in optical engineering, imaging, biomedical physics, computing and mechatronics to solve eye-related problems, by carefully interfacing with vision scientists on one side and ophthalmologists, optometrists, and surgeons on the other.
The IR. laboratory’s research topics can be broadly classified in:
- Research into novel optical, biomechanical and computing techniques for structural and functional eye studies
- Instrumentation development for preclinical, clinical, and surgical eye care
