What is Biomedical science and engineering?
The design, fabrication, testing, measurement, analysis and modelling of micro/nanostructures and devices that integrate silicon and related materials, polymers and biomolecules.
What is involved?
Much of the research applies engineering methodology (in particular mathematically-informed modelling and design) to model biomolecular signals and understand cellular processes, with the expectation of making biological and pathological processes more predictable and opening the possibility of 'reverse engineering' of natural biodevices and artificial or hybrid ones.
More activities that fall under biomedical science research encompass areas of our own research in the school:
- Mass spectrometry
- BioMEMS, organic and silicon electronics
- Signal processing
- Technological plasmas
- Algorithms, complexity theory and optimisation.
