About Biomedical Engineering

About Biomedical Engineering

Excellent laboratory facilities for basic and applied research are available in the Department and in the laboratories of associated staff located elsewhere on campus. The Department operates a network of high-performance workstations and well-equipped mechanical and electronics workshops.

Basic research in the Department concentrates on the application of quantitative engineering analysis methods to basic biomedical research problems. Currently active areas of research include:

  • neuromuscular and postural control;
  • muscle mechanics;
  • the vestibular system;
  • oculomotor control;
  • the auditory system;
  • joint prosthetics;
  • biomaterials;
  • artificial cells and organs;
  • cell and tissue engineering;
  • drug delivery;
  • microencapsulation;
  • microbiome and probiotics;
  • functional food and neutraceuticals;
  • medical imaging;
  • microfluidics;
  • nanomedicine and nanotechnology;
  • bioinformatics in genomics and proteomics.

Staff members are also active in more applied research related to the development of quantitative analysis tools and instruments for biomedical research. Areas of activity here include: signal analysis, system identification, modelling, simulation and parameter estimation, image processing, pattern recognition, ultrasound, and biorobotics.

Graduate Certificate (Gr. Cert.) Translational Biomedical Engineering (15 credits)

This program will enable students to translate advances in biomedical engineering research to clinical and commercial solutions. Students will learn the complementary skills needed to take early-stage research results from the bench to the bedside and bridge the gap between invention and product innovation.

The graduate certificate responds to the demand from students for such training and addresses the needs of the biomedical industry for such highly qualified personnel.

For additional information, see the Biomedical Engineering website.
