The Division of Biomedical Engineering is part of the Department of Materials Science, focusing on basic mechanisms for the development and evaluation of new materials in interaction with biological systems.
The Division is comprised of two research groups:
- BioMaterial Systems (BMS) group led by Prof. Cecilia Persson
- Enabling Microtechnologies for Biomedical and Life science Applications (EMBLA) group led by Prof. Maria Tenje
Mission statement: Our mission is to foster a dynamic teaching and research environment that is internationally recognised for its excellence in connecting basic research with clinical application.
