                  Dr. Mehran Anvari was presented with an award for innovation in Biology and Medicine for his work with Image-Guided Automated Robot (IGAR) at the NASA -International Space Station Research and Development Awards, Boston, Massachusetts. ? ?This is a nice recognition of almost 20 years of work,” said Anvari. “It recognizes an incredible team of talented people including engineers, technicians, doctors and astronauts who have helped develop this technology. We believe this technology will improve efficiency in the health re system by streamlining clinil workflow and allowing highly-skilled radiologists to extend their re to a wider population through teleoperation.”
