Medicine Meets Virtual Reality: Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center "Industry Day"
Yesterday I spent some time with grant writers from UNLV at the Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center‘s “Industry Day” before the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality Conference in Newport Beach, CA.
The day focused on presenting projects the TATRC was in the process of funding and providing opportunities for industry and academia groups to discuss future funding opportunities. TATRC’s mission is to “execute a congressional special interest program of medical science and engineering technology research that maximizes benefits to military medicine”. Think of them as the U.S. military’s version of the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH).
