The School of Biomedical Engineering was established in 2019 to facilitate collaborative research excellence in the field of biomedical engineering. Through our academic staff and students, our research will aim to serve the public as a thought-leader and provide innovative technology for industry, hospitals, governments and the wider community.
Drawing on extensive experience in this field, the School of Biomedical Engineering will train the next generation of biomedical engineers by offering opportunities to carry out leading-edge research within world-class purpose built research facilities.
We will further strengthen our capacity to change the landscape of healthcare through multidisciplinary partnerships and engaging with our network across the University, including the Faculty of Medicine and Health, the Sydney Nano Institute, the Charles Perkins Centre, the Brain and Mind Centre, Westmead and other leading teaching and research hospitals.
This distinguished lecture by Professor Tony Mikos explores recent examples of biomaterials-based approaches for regenerative medicine applications, such as the use of tissue engineering to model tumour microenvironments for validation of cancer therapeutic discovery.
