Biomedical engineering

Innovation in practice

Our researchers are working closely with hospitals and clinics to understand the needs of end users. We are developing innovative real-world solutions that are benefiting the patients of today and the healthcare of the future.

We undertake clinical practice in orthopaedics and trauma and apply core engineering skills to challenges in medicine. We're constantly developing and applying new knowledge to the full range of orthopaedic diseases and injuries, including knee and hip replacements.

Expertise in health

A strong foundation of knowledge in biomedical engineering underpins our research, incorporating expertise in:

  • cell biology
  • mathematical modelling
  • human anatomy and physiology
  • clinical medicine in orthopaedics and trauma.

Advanced technology and approaches

We're investigating musculoskeletal, orthopaedic and neuroscience disorders and injuries with industry-leading innovations in:

  • novel medical technology
  • medical imaging
  • information technology
  • biotechnology
  • and tissue regeneration.

This enables early and accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment and optimal rehabilitation.

We're also investigating cutting-edge, holistic translational approaches in:

  • biomechanics
  • medical devices and therapeutic applications
  • bone and tissue engineering
  • scaffolds
  • stem cell
  • gene therapy
  • new biomaterials
  • bio-compatibility.

We're bringing new discoveries to those who need them with clinical intervention and early adoption across a number of smart device applications and technologies.
