Research areas in biomedical engineering

Biomedical engineering is multidisciplinary, bringing together expertise in engineering, physics, materials science, computation, biology and medicine to increase our understanding of diseases, improve diagnosis, and develop treatments that benefit human health. Our researchers are pushing the boundaries of science and technology, developing new tools and techniques to help solve some of the most challenging problems in medicine and healthcare.

Research focus areas

Our research covers a spectrum of conditions, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurology, orthopedics, optics and regenerative medicine. With access to one of the top-20 hospitals in the country, a veterinary school, and cutting-edge research centers, our faculty and graduate students have the opportunity to collaborate with peers across the university.
