Program Description:

Earn Temple University’s Bioengineering PhD and pursue research that will establish you as an expert within the field. Develop the expertise to uncover new insights, innovate new products or expand the leading-edge of knowledge in the field of bioengineering.

The program is defined by a strong emphasis on translational medicine—always pushing to ensure evidence-based conclusions reach the clinical testing stage and, if confirmed, added to treatment protocols. The college offers you many research areas to explore, pivoting around advances in biological imaging, biomaterials and injury biomechanics, neuroengineering, stem- and cancer-cell engineering, synthesis and properties of biomaterials, targeted drug delivery, tissue regeneration, and more.  

Doctoral candidates have pursued their research with collaborators Temple’s Fox Chase Cancer Center, Katz School of Medicine, Kornberg School of Dentistry, and College of Science and Technology.

Your progress is fostered by state-of-the-art lab facilities and the support of a small engineering community with an intimate learning atmosphere.

Most courses and lab work occur during the day, but you may take evening classes to complete the program’s didactic coursework.
