All awards are conferred on a competitive basis by submission of a grant application. The deadline for submitting letters of intent for both grants programs is June 11, 2018.
Clinical Research Grant and Technology Research Grant awardees will address important clinical questions or support clinically relevant technology development related to robot-assisted surgery. Grants will be awarded to researchers at non-profit institutions worldwide.
