Biomedical Science and Engineering
Biomedical Science and Engineering Research covers a broad range of biologically inspired and biologically related research within the School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science, including the design, fabrication, testing, measurement, analysis and modelling of micro/nano structures and devices that integrate silicon and related materials, polymers and biomolecules. This research is deeply multidisciplinary, comprising researchers with primary background in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Chemical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Cybernetics. 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.
