IT Hackathon

© dkfz.de

Christoph Kolb, Matthias Eisenmann, Christian Weber and Jens Petersen

participated in the {Life Science} meets IT Hackathon (www.lifesciencemeetsit.eu) and won both the audience award and the award for "Best Business Case".

Together with their colleagues from the surgical department of the Heidelberg University Hospital they developed a system that greatly simplifies teaching of minimally invasive/laparoscopic surgery. The system allows experienced surgeons to virtually interact with the instruments of a learning surgeon and to guide them similar to classical surgery. The awards include participation in a Europe-wide startup contest and a comprehensive founding package.
