Research Themes

 

Research at the Institute for Engineering in Medicine is focused around five main themes: Cardiovascular Engineering, Neuroengineering, Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering, Medical and Biological Imaging, and Medical Devices. The interdisciplinary nature of IEM's mission and approach creates tremendous opportunities for collaborations across multiple themes.

 

Medical Devices Center

Cardiovascular Engineering

The goal of the Cardiovascular Engineering Theme is to reveal mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases at all levels and develop means for diagnosis, treatment and management of cardiovascular diseases.

Medical Devices Center

Neuroengineering

The goal of this research theme is to sense, decode, modulate and interface with the brain and neural systems for a better understanding of neural functions and dysfunctions and development of novel neurotechnologies.

Medical Devices Center

Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering

The goal of the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Theme is to understand and control cells so that we can design therapeutic strategies to halt disease and promote regenerative healing.

Medical and Biological Imaging

Medical and Biological Imaging

The research goal of this theme is to strengthen critical roles of medical and biological imaging in supporting broad aspects of biomedical research and clinical translation.

Medical Devices Center

Medical Devices

The goal of the Medical Devices Theme is to develop and evaluate device and instrumentation concepts for clinical translation to devices addressing unmet medical needs.
