The Department of Biomedical Engineering drives research and education in medical technologies, health informatics and healthcare delivery. Combining the expertise of engineers, biomedical researchers, clinical practitioners and industry partners, we create innovative medical solutions that have societal and economic impact.
Biomaterials and tissue engineering
Interdisciplinary research into biomaterials synthesis, fabrication and characterisation, stem cell culture, tissue regeneration and medical device design.
Biomechanics and mechanobiology
Employs the principles of mechanics to investigate the effects of energy and forces in biological systems. Our research specialisations focus on musculoskeletal modelling, injury, orthopaedics, cell biomechanics and biomaterials.
Bionics, biomedical imaging and neuroengineering
Using scientific methods to understand and model the nervous system, and applying this knowledge to engineer systems that interact with, augment, or mimic nervous system functionality.
Systems and synthetic biology
An interdisciplinary team of researchers developing computational approaches to understanding human health and disease.
