Dr Zuzak is a Biomedical Engineer and Inventor. Over 20 years working directly with national & military labs, academia, hospitals, clinics, and industry developing systems for surgical guidance.
The Biomedical Imaging Transnational Research Program.
Collaboration between UTA (School of Engineering/Biomedical Engineering) and UTSW (Department of Surgery).
A multi-million dollar program with sponsors including local and federal government, Texas Instruments and Raytheon. Developing medical imaging systems (visible, near infrared, infrared, fluorescence, spectroscopic and chemometric) were translating to the patient bedside including macroscopic, microscopic, laparoscopic and robotic guidance for clinical and surgical venues aiding clinicians to see disease better.
