Programs and Centers

The programs and centers in the Bio-Med Sciences and Engineering cluster are tasked with improving human health through a wide range of fields, most involved in some way with biomolecular science and engineering. For example, bio-imaging, bio-materials, bio-molecular design and its simulation can all be linked with the biomolecular vein, as can chronic and infectious diseases and cancer research. Neurocognitive networks, genetics, visual system development and treatment of eye diseases are also included in the cluster.
