Idea to Innovation Grant awarded to Dr. Dinesh Pai

April 16, 2014

Dr. Dinesh K. Pai has received an NSERC Idea to Innovation (I2I) Grant for his work on developing realistic computer models of skin and skin-like materials.

I2I Grants provide funding to university faculty members to support research and projects with recognized technology transfer potential.

The objective of his project is to develop a high-performance software library that can be used to simulate realistic skin movement. This project builds upon a recent breakthrough in Dr. Pai’s Sensorimotor Systems Lab’s research in simulating skin-like materials that move in close contact with the body.
