By its very nature, biomedical engineering can be defined as the intersection of engineering and medicine. Nowhere is that intersection more highly defined than in our research labs. The recent work of the Department of Biomedical Engineering in tissue engineering and drug delivery allows us to imagine a day when our own body tissues are replaced, enhanced or restored, and personalized genetics-based drug delivery to the central nervous system and the brain combats cancer.
Both are examples of promising research designed to improve or maintain the quality of our lives and the lives of those around us.
