We're committed to producing high-quality research output, training and knowledge transfer. Much of our work is clinically driven and conducted together with clinical or industrial organisations.

We've developed an excellent research environment that allows new talent to thrive and develop within innovative research programmes and collaborations. These are supported through our established clinical and industrial multidisciplinary networks.

We believe this approach provides biomedical engineering with the capability to continue to prosper in a rapidly evolving and competitive research landscape.

Our researchers

Research students are part of our thriving community of researchers dedicated to advancing the links between engineering, science and medicine.

The department also hosts research centres which are at the forefront of pioneering biomedical engineering-related research:

Intelligent Surgical Drill System

Our researcher Wei Yao has been working with his team to develop an intelligent drill and navigation system for orthopaedic surgery. It aims to significantly improve implant positioning, patient outcomes and healthcare costs.
