Graduate Study. The Biomedical Engineering Graduate Group (BMEGG) offers programs of study and research leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The programs of study prepare students for professional work in the effective integration of engineering with medical and biological sciences. Research strengths lie in the areas of: stem cell & tissue engineering for regenerative medicine; biophotonics & biomedical  imaging; biosensors, MEMS & nanomaterials; cellular & molecular mechanics; computational bioengineering & modeling; biomaterials & drug delivery; neuroengineering; musculoskeletal biomechanics & mechanobiology; cardiac electrophysiology; and synthetic biology, systems biology, & bioinformatics. This broad interdisciplinary program is best suited for students who are capable of and comfortable with considerable independence. Each student, together with an advisor, defines a specific course of study suited to individual goals.

Preparation. The BMEGG regards strong competence in mathematics and engineering as necessary for successful completion of study. Prior course work in these areas is emphasized in the evaluation of applications. Some undergraduate training can be acquired after admission to the BMEGG, but it may require an additional year of study.

Courses. See Biomedical Engineering.
