About MMVR

Since 1992, when it debuted as “Medicine Meets Virtual Reality,” MMVR has served as a forum for researchers harnessing IT advances for the benefit of patient diagnosis and care, medical education, and procedural training. Participants are scientists, physicians, engineers, educators, students, military, industry, psychologists, designers, futurists, and others who are interested in medicine’s future.

Please note that plans are already under way for TATRC ( to showcase key research projects from its funded portfolio.

After a year’s sabbatical, we look forward to creating a program that will highlight recent innovation and renew collaboration among scientists, technologists, clinicians, teachers, students, industry, and visionaries.

Your participation is invited!
