Program Description:

At Binghamton University, Biomedical Engineering students will have opportunities to interact with world-class faculty to pursue cutting-edge biomedical science and engineering research. Students will learn and develop their professional skills to be leaders in the field of engineering, biology, medicine, business and education. The program will offer ample opportunities to allow students to design and implement innovative techniques and ideas in a dynamic, enriched, and cutting edge environment. Members of our faculty currently explore and conduct research in field including: • Stem Cell Engineering and Regenerative Medicine • 3D Tissue and Organ Printing • Advanced Biomanufacturing • Single Molecule Imaging and Biosensing • Nanomedicine and Nanotoxicity • Optogenetics • Vaccine Development • Skin Biomechanics • In Vitro Models of Organs and Tissues for Drug Discovery • Drug Delivery and Molecular Imaging • Bioelectromagnetics • Smart Medical Devices • Bioinformatics • Data-Driven Synthetic Biology • Computer Supported Diagnosis and Prognosis • Interactive Evolutionary Computation • Human Physiology and Chronic Diseases • Evolution of Smart Machines based on Spiking Neural Networks The M.S. program prepares students for careers in the biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industry and medical/healthcare fields. Students will learn engineering principles and develop their analytic skills and leadership as they relate to medical settings, with an emphasis on writing skills to produce a high level of expertise in the field. For the Ph.D. program students gain a detailed understanding of biomedical science and engineering principles along with advanced proficiency in biomedical science and engineering research techniques. The program culminates in a dissertation, and graduates are prepared to develop original research, convey research results in an academic format, and teach in academic settings. As a student you have access to a vast number of first-class biomedical science and engineering research facilities such as: • State-of-the-art laboratory facilities for research in stem cell and regenerative medicine, 3D tissue and organ printing, cell and tissue cultures, organs-on-chip, genomics, proteomics, molecular imaging, and small animal experiments, mechanobiology, nanomedicine and computational biology. • The Clinical Science and Engineering Research Center where students join faculty and staff in conducting clinical trials • Collaborations with clinicians at five nearby medical centers • Two teaching laboratories (a wet lab and a dry lab) with advanced data acquisition and analysis tools such as inverted microscopes, spectrophotometers, oscilloscopes, centrifuges and autonomous mobile robots • A Graduate Advising Office and Biomedical Graduate Director who guide and counsel graduate students throughout their academic careers We invite you to explore our website for the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering. And please explore our faculty profiles and learn what else Binghamton has to offer.
