National Biocomputation Center

The National Biocomputation Center was founded in 1998 as a joint collaboration between the NASA Ames Research Center and the Stanford University School of Medicine. 

The mission of the Center is to lead a national effort in developing and applying 3D imaging and visualization technologies for biomedical and educational purposes in support of the NASA mission for the human exploration and development of space. 

We develop advanced technologies for computer-based surgical planning, computer-based surgical simulation, augmented reality for surgical applications, databases of human anatomy, and wireless telemedicine.
