The IEEE Transactions on Medical Robotics and Bionics (T-MRB) is an initiative shared by the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation – RAS – and Engineering in Medicine and Biology – EMBS.

T-MRB is a multi-disciplinary journal aimed at publishing peer-reviewed papers and focused on innovative research ideas and medical application results, reporting significant theoretical findings and application case studies in the areas of medical robotics and bionics.

The Hamlyn Symposium was selected for two special editions of T-MRB:

Guest Editorial Medical Robotics: Surgery and Beyond, (Volume: 2, Issue: 4, Nov. 2020)

The editorial choice to link this issue (Volume 2, Issue 4, November 2020) of T-MRB to the 2020 Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (HSMR20) has been made to provide a cross-disciplinary platform to present the latest research in surgical robotics and allied technologies. Systems, devices and methods developed by teams of engineers, computer scientists, researchers and clinicians, are featured, which address significant technological challenges in surgical robotics, with the promise to positively impact clinical practice.

Guest Editorial Surgical Robotics: Clinical Challenges and Levels of Autonomy, ( Volume: 2, Issue: 2, May 2020)

The editorial choice to link this issue (Volume 2, Issue 2) of T-MRB to the 2019 Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (HSMR19) is to capture the latest cross-disciplinary research carried out by teams of engineers, clinicians, computer scientists and so on, to address some of the main clinical challenges in surgical robotics, and how these advances can impact the clinical practice.
