SMU researchers team up to create a finishing move against cancer.

There aren't enough surgeons in developing countries. Cancer surgery isn't a game, but what if we could make it more gamelike? SMU Researchers including SMU Guildhall's own Boris Fisher are discovering ways to do just that, using Virtual Reality Surgery Simulator (VRSS) gaming technology to make a difference in changing lives.
