Alisa Brown was awarded a STAR (Summer Training and Research) Program scholarship for her research on the development of new rigid-body marker designs for surgical tracking and navigation. Alisa began research at the I-STAR Lab in 2016 using 3D printing to produce new marker tools for image-guided neurosurgery and orthopaedic surgery. Her research includes the development of a large, open-source library of marker designs to facilitate research in image-guided surgery, particularly for systems involving multiple tracked tools – for example, surgical pointers, endoscope, ultrasound probe, C-arm, and/or patient reference marker. Alisa is a rising senior in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
