NSF grant supports new approach to gait training for stroke survivors Thirty percent of stroke survivors, including some 300,000 Americans every year, are left with compromised walking ability. As our population ages, these numbers will undoubtedly grow, increasing...read more
NSF grant supports research to shed light on how cartilage works. Cartilage, a connective tissue found throughout the body, is critical to the function of our joints. Tough yet flexible, it supports load and enables frictionless motion between joint surfaces....read more
Biomedical engineering applies fundamental engineering principles to the study of biology, medicine and health.
Our undergraduate program provides a broad background in chemical, mechanical, materials science and electrical engineering, and it prepares students for careers in biomedical research with a quantitative engineering emphasis. It is also designed to provide students with sufficient coursework for advanced training at graduate, medical or physical therapy schools or in other allied health professions. Our graduate program builds upon the established biomedical research strength at the University and trains future generations of researchers and professionals who will play a key role in multi- and interdisciplinary teams that bridge the gap between engineering and the biological sciences.
