The close views during the (f) surface incision and (g) deep margin dissection for a pseudotumor on a porcine tongue tissue.

Robotic surgeon precisely removes cancerous tumors

The Autonomous System for Tumor Resection, designed by a team of Johns Hopkins researchers, can remove tumors from the tongue with accuracy rivaling—or even potentially exceeding—that of human surgeons.

Diagram of an eye receiving photoacoustic retinal stimulation via an epiretinal implant. Red arrows represent a laser pulse hitting the implant, which generates blue acoustic waves depicted as wavy lines that stimulate the underlying retinal cells.

New nanomaterial for retinal implants could someday help restore sight for millions

Emad Boctor and Seth Billings's approach converts light into sound, activating damaged eye cells.

Could an electric nudge to the head help your doctor operate a surgical robot?

A Johns Hopkins study finds stimulating people’s brains with gentle electric currents can boost learning.

A group of four young people stands around a computer. One wears glasses and has a black prosthetic arm.

Putting prosthetics research back in touch

Researchers urge the greater prosthesis engineering community to listen to end users' actual needs.
