Academic Career and Research Areas

The Chair of Prof. Navab (b. 1960) focuses on computer-aided medical procedures and augmented reality. The work involves developing technologies to improve the quality of medical intervention and bridges the gap between medicine and computer science.

After studying mathematics and physics, computer engineering and systems control, Prof. Navab did his doctorate at INRIA / Paris XI. He then did two years of postdoctoral research at MIT Media Laboratory in Cambridge, USA. Prior to becoming a full professor at TUM in 2003, Prof. Navab was a distinguished member of the technical staff at Siemens Corporate Research (SCR) in Princeton, USA. In 2006, he became a board member of MICCAI, the organizer of the world’s leading conference on medical image computing and computer assisted intervention. He is on the editorial board of many international journals, including IEEE TMI, MedIA and Medical Physics. Prof. Navab has authored hundreds of scientific publications and has filed over 60 international patents.
