Biomedical Engineering applies engineering principles and techniques to solving medical problems and to translating new discoveries into the clinic and operating room. Faculty, 1/3 of whom have appointments in the School of Medicine, work on better ways to detect, study, reverse, or cure such problems as cancer and heart disease, repair and regenerate tissues, and design vaccines. Undergraduates prepare for interdisciplinary careers by choosing among six areas: bioinstrumentation, biomaterials and tissue engineering, biomechanics, medical imaging, systems engineering, and pre-medical school preparation. Research and graduate studies focus on the broad areas of tissue engineering, imaging, cellular and molecular systems, orthopedic biomechanics, sensor and MEMs systems, targeted therapeutics, computational modeling, and biofluids & transport and synthetic bioengineering.
