Researchers at the department of Biomedical Engineering combine basic science (how) with engineering (how to). They investigate, develop and apply engineering principles and tools to unravel the pathophysiology of diseases and enhance diagnostics, intervention and treatment.
Interdisciplinary research has been realized in the three thematic programs: Regenerative Medicine, Molecular Imaging and Systems Biology
The Systems Biology theme aims to enhance the shift from ‘describing’ life’s processes to ‘understanding’ them and ‘capturing’ them in validated predictive models, and even ‘managing’ or ‘controlling’ them. The scope of this theme covers all levels from molecules to organs and humans, such as described by the transcriptome, proteome, metabolome and the physiome.
