MIRACLE II (2022-2027)
Building on the achievements of the MIRACLE Project (MIRACLE I) led by Prof. Hans-Florian Zeilhofer and Prof. Philippe Cattin, researchers at the Department of Biomedical Engineering plan a second project phase. Supported by the Werner Siemens Foundation, the team around the engineer Philippe Cattin (Department of Biomedical Engineering) and facial surgeon PD Dr Dr Florian Thieringer (University Hospital Basel) aims at teaching a modular robot to print personalized bio-implants. This completely novel intervention will be planned using virtual reality. The resulting designs will be produced in 3D printing, perhaps one day even directly in the body of the patient.
For this second phase, the Werner Siemens Foundation has generously provided 12 Mio. CHF. Both projects run under the title "MIRACLE" (Minimally Invasive Robot-Assisted Computer-guided LaserosteotomE). The name is a promise by the researchers to enable groundbreaking technology for surgery which from today's perspective - and not only for laypersons - are synonymous with a MIRACLE.
