Our research priorities

Working towards a better healthcare future for everyone

The Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering is globally celebrated for excellence in research. Our primary research activities are focused in two important areas – Bionics, Biomonitoring & Modelling and Biomaterials and tissue engineering.

We are involved with a wide range of biomedical engineering activities including biomechanics, orthopaedics, bioengineering computational modelling, laser micro-manufacturing, bioinstrumentation, electronic chip design, wireless sensor networks, two-photon microscopy, neurophysiology, electrophysiology, and in vitro and in vivo experimentation. 

Health care delivery

Our in-house research is focused on health care delivery. We have staff who work with clinicians and other associates across the country from our Sydney hospital partners (like Prince of Wales, Royal North Shore, St George, St Vincent's and Westmead), to teaching hospitals in other states. Together we strive to:

  • obtain increased knowledge of both healthy systems and failing organs to aid preventative medical care and future device development
  • improve the quality of patient treatment by design and evaluation of alternative treatment modalities
  • reduce costs of health care delivery without compromising treatment efficiency.
