Research Areas

  • Biomechanics : Mechanics of biological systems and living organisms. Studied on multiple levels, from nano-scale molecular interactions between proteins all the way up to whole body (organism) dynamics.

  • Biomedical Acoustics : The interaction of sound energy with the body has many important roles and applications. topics include biomedical acoustics fields, ultrasound imaging, interactions of ultrasound energy and tissue, ultrasound-based therapies, and studies of hearing.

  • Biomedical Nanotechnology : Development of new materials with dimensions on the order of tens to a few hundreds of nanometers. Bigger than what we normally consider molecules and smaller than bulk materials, nanomaterials have emergent properties that are a direct result of their size.

  • Biomedical Optics : Design and application of advanced optical techniques to solve pressing problems in medicine and biology.

  • Cell & Tissue Engineering : Generation of living tissue ex vivo for replacement or therapeutic applications through materials development, biochemical manipulations, cell culture, and genetic engineering.

  • Medical Imaging : Covering a broad scope of hardware and software development including Ultrasound, MRI, and PET-CT.

  • Neuroengineering : The combination of quantitative method, the physical sciences, and the biological sciences has provided remarkable contributions to our understanding of biomedical phenomena, including pathologic processes.
