Welcome to IEM

The Institute for Engineering in Medicine (IEM) at the University of Minnesota is dedicated to advancing healthcare by strengthening research collaborations between engineering and medicine in both academia and industry.  

We want the collaborations we inspire to combine medical expertise with engineering technology to transform the way diseases are diagnosed, treated and prevented … to revolutionize patient care … and create the blueprints for a healthier future.

 

About IEM

Our mission is to drive innovation by fostering multidisciplinary research, education, and collaboration with the regional medical technology industry, the University of Minnesota's Academic Health Center and the College of Science and Engineering.


Research

IEM research collaborations aim at the development of innovative engineering solutions for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Research at IEM is currently focused on the five broad themes noted below. We look forward to adding new themes as research progresses and we add new members and research partners to IEM.
