At the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (BME), our faculty members are collaborating across the disciplines of engineering, medicine and dentistry to develop innovative solutions for the most pressing health-care challenges in the world. 

Learn about our three research themes in biomedical and clinical engineering that are shaping the next frontiers in human health.

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.

Clinical Engineering

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.

Cell & Tissue Engineering

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

Molecular Engineering


Faculty & research are integral components of BME. With a strong focus on research, BME is located in the heart of Canada’s largest health-care research hub. Our 300 graduate students receive their training from 14 departments at U of T, 10 partner hospitals, and 7 research institutes & commercialization centres.
