Convergent research with collaboration across government, industry, and academia
The Department leads a university-wide research institute and focuses research areas in core disciplines that remain the backbone of the disciplinary work and represent the breadth of topics covered by the department within bioengineering.
Additionally, faculty conduct research as part of the College of Engineering’s multidisciplinary research centers and institutes with funding by eight federal agencies, as well as part of college-wide Research Initiatives, and within their laboratories.
