Novel Medical Technologies

Engineering advances have allowed us to observe, design and manipulate at multiple length scales down to the molecular level, opening up opportunities for the development of novel medical technologies.

Research in this area contributes to advancing Theme 2: Technologies for improved diagnostics and Theme 3: Engineered novel therapeutics in the Engineering Solutions for Health: Biomedical Engineering Research Strategy.
