In our research, we integrate engineering with biology and medicine to develop coherent solutions to medical problems. Our main focus lies on chemical biology, regenerative engineering & materials and biomedical imaging & modelling. Next to these cross-disciplinary areas, we intensify our research by adopting the newest insights in machine learning and artificial intelligence and the broader perspective of immuno-engineering. Our state-of-the art facilities, shared among all disciplines, enable our researchers to strive for scientific excellence in a most innovative environment.
The department of Biomedical Engineering can compete with other top institutions with high quality publications in the best journals, with high citation impact.
Regenerative Engineering and Materials
The research of the cluster is mostly basic and applied, focusing on adaptation, remodeling, growth, damage and repair in cells and tissues. We apply a combination of principles from fluid and solid mechanics, cell biology, immune-engineering and biophysics. Outcomes are translated into advanced medical interventions based on tissue engineering and materials for regenerative medicine, mainly in the areas of cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems.
