education for students and faculty within the College of Engineering.
Participating faculty and students are actively pursuing research in
a variety of fields that involve the application of engineering design
and analysis techniques to the study of physiological systems and to
the advancement of health care. Some current research topics include:

- biomaterials
- biomechanics / motor control
- biotribology
- bio-heat and mass transfer
- cellular transport
- occupational biomechanics / ergonomics
- medical applications of rapid prototyping
- tissue engineering
- biofluid mechanics
- vestibular mechanics

Participating departments include:

- Engineering Science and Mechanics
- Industrial and Systems Engineering
- Materials Science and Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering

Collaborative opportunities are available in conjunction with the
Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary medicine and with
other scientific and clinical colleagues at Virginia Tech and in
the surrounding region.

The Center for Biomedical Engineering will also coordinate and
support a graduate option as a supplement to individual degrees
awarded by departments partcipating in the Center. Resources for
graduate student support, sponsored research, outreach, and both
graduate and undergraduate course electives will also be available
through the Center.
