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 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
