We provide innovative solutions for pressing healthcare challenges throughout the research and translational pipeline:


BME’s clinical engineers design technologies, devices and strategies for people with chronic disease, traumatic injury, disabilities and mobility limitations to help them integrate more fully with their environment

Cell & Tissue

Research that has the potential to change how we think about disease and aging is happening at BME. Regenerative medicine uses stem cells and biomaterials to repair, replace or regenerate damaged tissue, organ structures and function


BME researchers are advancing disease detection, customizing drug delivery and improving health-care outcomes with faster and more precise technologies and systems

We are currently looking for qualified faculty candidates to join us in the following disciplines:


Biomedical engineering research drives us

We interviewed our faculty and students about what they are doing in the laboratory on a daily basis

We offer various biomedical engineering graduate programs for prospective students:

Research Program

Individuals pursuing careers in academia, healthcare, government, or industry, who have a passion for research and development

Professional Program

Individuals interested in medical device production from design to implementation in human patients

Listen to what our community has to say

We interviewed our students and faculty members about the past, present, and the future of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto. Here are some of the faces of Biomedical Engineering
