   The Chongqing Institutes of Green and Intelligent Technology (CIGIT) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) recently initiated a new Collaborative Innovation Program for Joint Scholars (CIJS Scholar Program). Being the first CIJS scholar, Dr. Jacob Rosen from UCLA started the collaboration with a ten day visit at CIGIT between August 24th, 2015 and September 2nd, 2015. The visit was hosted by Dr. Yao Li, the director of the Center for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (CRIM).  

    Dr. Rosen is the professor of medical robotics at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). His research interests focus on medical robotics, bio-robotics, surgical robotics, wearable robotics, rehabilitation robotics, neural control, and human-machine interface. The new international collaboration led by Dr. Rosen and Dr. Li at CIGIT robotics center mainly focus on tele-operation of surgical robot and haptic feedback manipulation. “Medical Robotics – Tales of Close Encounters” was the “Green Insight” key-note lecture that Dr. Rosen gave to CIGIT in English with simultaneous translation by Dr. Yao Li. Before the lecture, Dr. Rosen has received the award from the Dr. Jiahu Yuan, the director of CIGIT-CAS (Photo). As part of the interdisciplinary program, Dr. Rosen has had intensive discussions with Dr. Peiwu Yu from Southwest China Hospital, the leading surgeon on robotic surgery and clinical collaborator of CIGIT. The discussion shares ideas for future development of surgical robotics systems that will better meet the clinical needs in China, moreover it establishes concrete research plan that will continue to grow this evolving collaboration.  

    Dr. Rosen received his Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University in 1997. From 2001- 2008 he served as a faculty member at the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Washington in Seattle with adjunct appointments with the Departments of Surgery. From 2008- 2013 he served as a faculty member at the Department of Computer Engineering, University of California - Santa Cruz (UCSC).  Since 2014 he serves as a full professor at UCLA, directing the Bionics lab, and serves as a member at the Center for Advanced Surgical and Interventional Technology at David Geffen School of Medicine UCLA. Dr. Rosen developed several key systems in the field of medical robotics such as the Blue and the Red Dragon system, Raven – a surgical robotic system for tele-surgery, and the Exo-UL7 – a dual arm wearable robotic system.
