Research specializations in biology and disease

 

Biomedical engineering research combines engineering expertise with medical needs for the advancement and enhancement of health care. It is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering in which knowledge in biology and skills in engineering are combined for resolving fundamental problems in medicine, and for inspiring new diagnostic instruments, medical devices and therapies. Today biomedical engineering research is pushing the frontiers of science and technology by developing new tools and techniques that harness life to solve some of our most challenging problems in biology and medicine.
