The impact of research that has taken place inside the walls of the Beckman Institute over the past 20 years has been felt in the fields of technology, neuroscience, human cognition, and medicine. It has helped to make electronic devices more efficient and medical instruments more effective, improved the quality of life for older adults and the quality of products for manufacturers, and advanced our knowledge of science in a wide variety of the disciplines studied at the University of Illinois.
Sometime this fall the Beckman Institute will become home to a unique new student from Europe – the only one of its kind in the United States – in the form of a highly-advanced humanoid robot.
