Lee Weiss was a founding member of Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute. In the early years of the Institute his research focused on visual servo control of robots, flexible manufacturing systems, and micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS). He then went on to pioneer numerous methodologies and systems for additive manufacturing. However, he always went back to his roots in bioengineering, and over the last 39 years he has sought to apply his diverse background to create technology-based solutions to address challenging problems in clinical medicine, including development of devices for interventional radiology, fetal heart monitoring, cardiac pacing, angioplasty, MEMS-based drug delivery, and computer-aided surgery. His current research focuses on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. He holds 35 issued U.S. patents, has 160 peer-reviewed publications (Google Scholar Profile), and has founded several biomedical start-up companies.
