A new advanced treatment for precise neurosurgery
EDEN2020 aims to develop the gold standard for one-stop diagnosis and minimally invasive treatment in neurosurgery. EDEN2020 will provide a step change in the modelling, planning and delivery of diagnostic sensors and therapies to the brain via flexible surgical access, with an initial focus on cancer therapy. It will engineer a family of steerable catheters for chronic disease management that can be robotically deployed and kept in situ for extended periods. By modelling and predicting drug diffusion within the brain with unprecedented fidelity, EDEN2020 will contribute to the wider clinical challenge of extending and enhancing the quality of life of cancer patients – with the ability to plan therapies around delicate tissue structures and with unparalleled delivery accuracy.
Elena De Momi, MSc in Biomedical Engineering in 2002, PhD in Bioengineering in 2006, currently Assistant Professor in Electronic Information and Bioengineering Department (DEIB) of Politecnico di Milano. She is co-founder of the Neuroengineering and Medical Robotics Laboratory, in 2008, being responsible of the Medical Robotics section. IEEE Senior Member, she is currently Associate Editor of the Journal of Medical Robotics Research, of the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems, Frontiers in Robotics and AI and Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing. From 2016 she has been an Associated Editor of IEEE ICRA, IROS and BioRob and she is currently Publication Co-Chair of ICRA 2019. She is responsible for the lab course in Medical Robotics and of the course on Clinical Technology Assessment of the MSc degree in Biom. Eng. at Politecnico di Milano and she serves in the board committee of the PhD course in Bioengineering.
Her academic interests include image-processing, virtual environments, augmented reality and simulators, teleoperation, haptics, medical robotics, human robot interaction. She participated to several EU funded projects in the field of Surgical Robotics (ROBOCAST, ACTIVE and EuRoSurge, where she was PI for partner POLIMI). She is currently PI for POLIMI of the EDEN2020 project, aimed at developing a neurosurgery drug delivery system and of the ATLAS MSCA-ITN-2018-EJD. She has been evaluator and reviewer for the European Commission in FP6, FP7 and H2020.
