Read the latest news and achievements made by our 30+ core faculty members and 350+ graduate students.
August 5, 2020 | A graduate from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto (2008), Dr. Rahul Sarugaser took an unconventional step away from benchtop science and ventured into the world of investment. Now, he is evaluating investment prospects in healthcare, biotech, and cannabis at a tier-1 investment bank in Toronto. We sat down with Rahul at his office at Raymond James Ltd. to reflect on how he began his journey in Biomedical Engineering, and his transition into a seemingly adjacent field.
July 30, 2020 | Dr. Lidan You and Dr. Eli Sone were promoted to the position of Professor at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (BME), effective July 1st 2020. This promotion was based on their research excellence, teaching achievements, and community based contributions.
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.
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 interviewed our faculty and students about what they are doing in the laboratory on a daily basis
Individuals pursuing careers in academia, healthcare, government, or industry, who have a passion for research and development
Individuals interested in medical device production from design to implementation in human patients
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.
