The Engineering of Biomedical Systems program is part of the Engineering Biology and Health cluster, which also includes:

  • the Biophotonics program;
  • the Biosensing program;
  • the Cellular and Biochemical Engineering program; and
  • the Disability and Rehabilitation Engineering program.

The goal of theEngineering of Biomedical Systems(EBMS) program is to provide opportunities for fundamental and transformative research projects that integrate engineering and life sciences to solve biomedical problems and serve humanity in the long term. Projects are expected to use an engineering framework (for example, design or modeling) that supports increased understanding of physiological or pathophysiological processes. Projects must include objectives that advance both engineering and biomedical sciences.

Projects may include: methods, models, and enabling tools applied to understand or control living systems; fundamental improvements in deriving information from cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems; or new approaches to the design of systems that include both living and non-living components for eventual medical use in the long term.

The EBMS program supports fundamental and transformative research in the following areas of biomedical engineering:

  • Development of validated models (living or computational) of healthy and pathological tissues and organ systems that can support improved fundamental understanding of these systems or that could be applied in the future for development and testing of medical interventions;
  • Design and validation of systems that integrate living and non-living components for improved understanding of physiology that could be applied in the future for diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of disease or injury;
  • Design and subsequent application of technologies and tools to investigate fundamental physiological and pathophysiological processes;
  • Advanced biomanufacturing of three-dimensional tissues and organs; and
  • Application of engineering tools and principles, including mathematical modeling, to quantitatively study the immune system in health and disease and to develop techniques for controlling and modulating a host’s immune response to challenges such as infectious diseases, cancer, implants, autoimmune disorders, wounds, etc.
