Biomedical Engineering

The purpose of the Biomedical Engineering strand is to pursue excellence in biomedical engineering education, research, and innovation; creating and imparting knowledge for improving society, human health, and health care.

The main focus of the Biomedical Engineering thematic strand is centered on the research lines of hemodynamic instrumentation development (macrocirculation), laser-imaging techniques for microcirculation assessment and studies of electrical impedance tomography of living tissue.

Hemodynamic studies aim to develop inovative instrumentation for non-invasive assessment of well-established clinical hemodynamic parameters such as blood pressure, pulse wave velocity or augmentation index.
