The convergence of medicine and engineering is rapidly revolutionizing medical care. As a world leader in science and engineering, we shall take the steps necessary to play a major role in this convergence.

Our goal is to contribute to the lowering of healthcare costs and improved patient outcome by improving the performance and utilization of robotics in surgery and reducing the number of complications from minimally invasive surgery by half every ten years. We also will work to reduce both the complications and mortality rates resulted from preventable medical errors in ICU by half every ten years.
