Explore our Research Areas
For the graduate field of BME, which is much larger than the school, we emphasize the following six distinct but integrated areas of research:
Investigating the role of mechanical forces in physiological and disease processes.
Pioneering the development of imaging technologies and instruments, from simple Point-of-Care devices to sophisticated new microscopes that detect and uncover mechanisms of disease.
Designing systems that effectively control the delivery of medicines, to investigate the effects of medicines on cells and tissues, and to evaluate their preclinical and clinical efficacy.
Combining engineering with cell and molecular biology approaches to unravel disease mechanisms and identify novel therapeutic approaches.
Integrating experimental, modeling, and engineering approaches to dissect complex cellular phenomena at the network-scale.
Developing strategies for the recreation of tissues and the modeling of systems for research or drug testing.
