The researchers in the Biomedical Robotics lab aim to investigate novel robotic solutions for immediate medical challenges, with a focus on small-scale robotic systems for minimally invasive diagnostics and therapeutics.

The Biomedical Robotics lab was founded by Dr. ZHANG, Jiachen and started its research activities in the fall of 2021 at City University of Hong Kong. We aim to investigate novel design, fabrication, and control strategies to construct application-oriented robotic systems that have the potential to meet the ever-growing need in the biomedical field.
