Prominent research efforts include:

  • Cancer nanotechnology
  • Cardiovascular MRI
  • Concussion and head impact research
  • Global Human Body Models Consortium
  • Imaging analysis
  • Medical device design
  • Solid organs
  • Tissue engineering
  • Trauma research
  • Virtual human models
  • Head impact in sports
  • Injury biomechanics for soldiers
  • Regenerative medicine for soldiers

The program consists of traditional classroom instruction, independent research with a mentoring team, and clinical experience. Courses come from engineering and life science core courses and selected electives in engineering, life sciences, and related physical sciences, offerings include courses in the physics, mathematics, and computer science departments. The program is very flexible, and selection of elective courses can be individualized to complement the student’s background and interests.
