Catherine Mohr's Biography

Catherine Mohr is an expert in the fields of robotic surgery and sustainable technologies. She holds patents for medical devices, has been involved with several start up companies and today is Senior Director of Medical Research for Intuitive Surgical, maker of the da Vinci robotic surgical system. She holds a medical degree plus degrees in mechanical engineering and has worked in the fields of alternative energy and transportation—including alternate energy vehicles, and sustainable technologies.
