Research Areas

Biomedical engineering is very broad, encompassing all aspects of medicine with many fields of engineering.

Research here at the University of Delaware is well established. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of Biomedical Engineering, faculty at the university that are affiliated with this field are currently housed in the College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences and will likely expand to reside in other colleges.
