Partnering with VSR
The benefits of partnering with VSR go beyond the novel research and the products that this research fuels. As an integral part of the University of Iowa, VSR draws on expertise from other university groups such as the National Advanced Driving Simulator (the world’s most advanced driving simulator), the Center for Computer Aided Design (which houses multiple modeling and simulation groups), and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (one of the largest teaching hospitals in the nation). In addition, VSR brings with it a long history of industry and military research partners, meaning that new efforts are able to leverage previously funded work. Given that the majority of the funded work ultimately integrates with the Santos™ software, our partners play a role in shaping the human modeling software, providing input on the ground floor.
VSR's research partners take advantage of over $18 million in prior research and development, key University of Iowa faculty and staff that have developed (and continue to develop) the Santos technology, and a broad network of experienced medical researchers. Work is focused on extending, developing, and applying tools and technology to address research partners' specific problems. Through their involvement, research partners help shape the future of world’s most advanced digital human modeling and simulation environment, while VSR develops in-house expertise and future corporate resources fully versed in the use of our technology applied to the research partner’s domain.
