XR Healthcare: XR in Medicine in the Era of Precision Medicine (hosted by Stanford Healthcare Innovation Lab)

You will learn how Extended Reality (XR) is used in the context of precision medicine through the research at Weill Cornell Medicine.




In this talk, Professor Alex Sigaras will guide us to explore the potential of XR in Medicine and more specifically in Precision Medicine. We will present ongoing research projects at Weill Cornell Medicine spanning from cancer gene/drug interaction networks, visualizing protein structures, manipulating embryos in VR and others. Finally, we will present ongoing XR projects that started during the pandemic, how they are helping clinicians and scientists further medicine and what a post-pandemic future holds for XR in Medicine.
