Robotics Colleagues:

  It is a great pleasure to report that Professor Russell H. Taylor has 
just been awarded the 2010 MICCAI Society Enduring Impact Award by the 
Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention Society at 
the 2010 MICCAI conference in Beijing, China.  One of these highly 
prestigious awards is given annually in recognition of the awardee's 
research leadership in the field of medical robotics.

  Russ, a JHU engineering alumnus, was one of the founding members of 
the MICCAI Society (http://www.miccai.org) and was elevated to the rank 
of MICCAI Fellow in 2009.  Russ is also a Fellow of the Institute of 
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the American Institute 
for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). He was awarded the IEEE 
Third Millennium Medal in 2000 and the IEEE Robotics and Automation 
Society Pioneer Award in 2008.

  Russell Taylor is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science, 
Whiting School of Engineering, The Johns Hopkins University, with joint 
appointments in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and, at the JHU 
School of Medicine, the Departments of Radiology and Surgery. He is the 
founder and director of JHU's Engineering Research Center for 
Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology.

  Please join me in congratulating Russ (rht at jhu.edu) on this well 
deserved award in recognition for his extraordinary research and 
leadership contributions in the field of medical robotics.

   Best Regards,
