DGIST-ETH Microrobotics Research Center (DEMRC) was initially established for global collaboration on microrobot research between DGIST and ETH. DEMRC is planing to expand the collaboration with other domestic and international institutes. DEMRC has several government funded research projects including a major robotics project on industrial core technology development funded by the Korea Evaluation Institute of Industrial Technologies (KEIT) and Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy( MOTIE), Korea. The center will pursue the project by development of medical microrobots and new minimally invasive treatment technology to cure chronic arterial occlusion with blocked arteries. Furthermore, the center plans to develop core technology of microrobot such as two and three-dimensional medical imaging, remote robot control for minimal exposure to radiation and efficient chronic arterial occlusion treatment.
