Leading UCalgary's biomedical engineering community
Many faculty members, students, and postdocs from across campus are engaged with the interdisciplinary Department of Biomedical Engineering. Their innovations drive research in human mobility, health monitoring, advanced biomedical imaging, precision biodiagnostics, regenerative medicine and novel medical technologies. Our researchers form collaborative and multidisciplinary teams across campus to transform lives and improve the health system.
Engineering Solutions for Health
In March 2015, the University of Calgary launched its biomedical engineering research strategy – Engineering Solutions for Health. This interdisciplinary research area involves engineering, medicine, kinesiology, veterinary medicine, science and nursing – all working together to address complex, global health-care research challenges. It identified four research themes:
- Integrated approaches to enable prevention of injury and disease, and support healthy aging
- Technologies for improved diagnostics
- Engineered novel therapeutics
- Optimized healthcare system performance
