Desai to speak at National Academy of Sciences seminar

The National Academy of Sciences has selected ISR-affiliated Associate Professor Jaydev Desai (ME) to give the June 2011 talk in its "Distinctive Voices" seminar series at The Beckman Center in Irvine, Calif.

Desai will speak about robot-assisted neurosurgery. He is the director of the Robotics, Automation, and Medical Systems Laboratory (RAMS Lab) and affiliated with the Maryland Robotics Center.

The Distinctive Voices series presents innovations, discoveries, and emerging issues in science, technology and medicine in an exciting public forum. It was created in 2006 as a program of the NAS Communication Initiative to increase science literacy in the local community. The program received major funding from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Fund of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. Additional support is provided by The Edward Lifesciences Fund.
