Interdisciplinary Research Lab (IFL) at Klinikum rechts der Isar


IFL is a central research laboratory open for joint projects of the medical and non-medical groups of the Technische Universität München. Its goal is to encourage interdisciplinary work and discussion between Applied Sciences, Engineering and Medicine in close contact with physicians in order to generate new lines of applied research in Medical Technology and Computer- and Robot-Aided Medical Procedures. The laboratory serves as a space for collaborative projects that aim at the fast transfer of technological development into the clinical routine by an iterative approach, getting feedback from the end-user - the clinician – during the development process.

We have equipment relevant to a multi-disciplinary research environment, including an Intuitive Surgical daVinci system, KUKA light-weight robotic arms, several ultrasound systems, tracking systems and RGB-D cameras.

IFL further serves as a show-room for cutting-edge research, keeping both the medical personnel at the Klinikum rechts der Isar and the community informed of latest results. In this way we can obtain early feedback for our research projects and encourage new collaborations.
