Prestigious Robotics Journal To Be Led By Imperial Researcher

Via Imperial College London | January 8, 2016

Imperial’s Professor Guang-Zhong Yang has been appointed Editor of Science Robotics, the latest offering from Science publisher, AAAS.

The journal, which launches this year, will publish cutting-edge research into robotics.

Professor Yang is Director of the Hamlyn Centre, where he develops innovative medical technology using cutting-edge robotics, imaging and sensing. His team’s discoveries have enabled surgeons to utilise ultra-flexible and affordable robotic instruments, including snake robots and micro-surgical robots that help to treat patients with unprecedented accuracy during operations.  

As Editor, Professor Yang will be in charge of disseminating the results of robotics research carried out in human health, space, ocean, land, atmosphere, industrial, and service environments.
