Research Institutes

The department of Biomedical Engineering participates in the below research institute.

Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS)

The Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS), founded on April 1, 2008, is an interdisciplinary initiative at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). It brings excellent researchers from different areas together to promote cross-breeding of ideas across departments and across disciplines. The institute aims at becoming an internationally leading institute. It will do this by forcing widely recognized scientific breakthroughs in the engineering of complex molecular systems and by forming an advanced study center for scientific discussion on the topic of complexity.

Several research groups in different departments form the basis research platform for building knowledge and infrastructure in systems chemistry and supramolecular chemistry. With this multidisciplinary approach the aim is to create complex, functional objects based on novel engineering tools and state-of-the-art modeling. All in close collaboration with staff members, PhD students and post-docs working in physics, biology, mathematics, chemistry, chemical engineering and mechanical engineering.
