This institute belongs to both College of Medicine and College of Engineering. The Master Program started in 1998 and Ph.D. Program started in 2001.
The institute has five divisions, Biomaterials, Biomechanical Engineering, Bioelectronics, Clinical Engineering, and Biomedical informatics. The research fields include Bioceramics and Composites material, Biomedical Polymer Material, Drug Delivery System, Bio-nano Materials, Orthopaedic Biomechanics, Human Movement Analysis, Computer Assisted surgery, Prosthetics and Orthotics, Rehabilitation Engineering, Bioinstrumentation, Medical mMicrosensors, Signal Processing, Medical Imaging, Microarray Analysis, Database Processing, Biophotonics, Tissue Engineering , Ultrasound Thermal Therapy.
Biomedical engineering is discipline that integrates biology, medicine and engineering knowledge to solve biomedical engineering problem. The main mission of the institute is to promote activities of teaching, research and development in biomedical engineering.
We hope to reach several goals as following items:
We also publish a scientific journal, the journal of Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications (BME).
It is an international, interdisciplinary journal aiming at publishing up-to-date contributions on original clinical and basic research in the biomedical engineering. It covers the fields of bioelectronics, biomaterials, biomechanics, bioinformatics, nano-biological sciences and clinical engineering. We hope this journal will serve as a new forum for both scientists and clinicians to share their ideas and the results of their studies.
