The Biomedical Engineering Department conducts research in many areas. The major categories are listed below.
The diversity of faculty within the biomedical engineering program at UCD provides a wide variety of facilities for student research. The program is administered by faculty from a variety of departments in several schools and colleges – including engineering, medicine, veterinary medicine, agricultural and environmental sciences, and letters and sciences – who are organized into a graduate group.
Particularly valuable resources include:
There are excellent mechanical and electrical shop facilities, in addition to a student-faculty shop (in the College of Engineering) for those who choose to do their own shop work. A campus Organized Research Unit, the Institute for Data Analysis and Visualization (IDAV), has considerable interaction with the graduate group and provides facilities for it.
