  • Promotes engineering research in minimally invasive biomedical technology that results in reduced risk and morbidity, lowered healthcare costs, faster recovery, less time lost from work and activities, and improved quality of life.

  • Advances four major objectives: (1) diagnosis of diseases and disorders with minimal harm to healthy tissues, (2) diagnosis of diseases and disorders with minimal exposure to toxic agents, (3) treatment of illness by targeting therapies directly to the affected site without acting on unaffected sites, and (4) monitoring physiology and health with minimum affect on the body.

Some topics in which affiliated faculty conduct research:

Biosensors, biomedical instruments, patient monitoring equipment, and microcomputer-based medical instruments; molecular engineering for localized drug delivery; radiological engineering and imaging-guided treatment; biomechanics, musculoskeletal injuries, and instruments and devices for arthroscopic and laparoscopic surgery; rehabilitation engineering and design for disabilities.
