Our Division is powered by dedicated researchers and strong collaborations focused on educating future research leaders and making fundamental scientific advances in the field of Biomedical Engineering and beyond.
We develop novel medical devices and technologies capable of delivering substantial healthcare benefit, and translate new engineering technologies into clinical practice.
OUR DIVISION HAS TWO MAIN RESEARCH GROUPS WORKING IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:
The Tenje Lab is focused on droplet based microfluidics and organs-on-chip, combining microfabrication techniques with microfluidics to develop new platforms for visualisation and characterisation of cells to learn more about the human biology. We address both fundamental research questions and develop microsystems that in the near future could find clinical and industrial applications.
The BioMaterial Systems (BMS) group focuses on the study and development of new biomaterials, mainly for orthopaedic applications. We have a specific focus on material- and implant design development through additive manufacturing (3D-printing). We strive for an enhanced understanding of material behaviour and mechanisms and to connect fundamental research to the clinical application.
