Dr. Terry Peters' Group
At Robarts Research Institute we’ve made it our mission to accelerate medical discovery. Right now, our scientists are conducting basic and clinical research that will have an impact on many of today’s most devastating diseases. This remarkable science is driven by a common philosophy: to bring medical discoveries and new technologies faster to clinical trial, faster to market, and, ultimately, faster to you.
Welcome to the VASST Lab
Dr. Peters' laboratory for Virtual Augmentation and Simulation for Surgery and Therapy (VASST Lab) is concerned with the development and validation of tools that allow surgeons to make efficient use of images, produced by sophisticated 3-D imaging systems, during surgical procedures. The objective of minimally-invasive neurosurgery is to resect or lesion the smallest volume of brain tissue, causing the least trauma to the patient while achieving the desired therapeutic result.
