Biomedical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering CIG is under the direction of Drs. Cato Laurencin and Syam Nukavarapu. The goal of this CIG is to apply engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology in order to enhance diagnostic and therapeutic healthcare. Importantly, the work of the Biomedical Engineering CIG seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine by combining the design, advanced fabrication, and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance health care treatment.
