Ongoing biomedical-engineering research at McGill includes:
- signal analysis, including brain (EEG), muscles (EMG), eyes (EOG), respiration and mass spectrometry
- systems analysis, including neuromuscular control and oculomotor & vestibular control;
- experimental and computational biomechanics, including orthopedic and auditory mechanics;
- biomaterials, including artificial cells & tissue engineering;
- medical imaging and image processing;
- micro and nanotechnology, and biosensors;
- nanoparticles and cell imaging;
- bioinformatics; and
- computers in medical education, including interactive 3-D models and haptics (force feedback).
In many of these areas there is considerable emphasis on biomedical modelling, and on the development of sophisticated instrumentation and software.
