Associate Professor Jaydev Desai (Mechanical Engineering and Graduate Program in Bioengineering) will be the Program Chair for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) BioRob 2008 International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics, to be held on October 19-22 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a ?biomechatronic? point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems, for many different applications; and to develop novel nano-, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation and personal assistance.
