Faculty List by Research Area
The Biomedical Engineering Department maintains a vibrant research program with approximately 68,000 square feet of laboratory space in three buildings at 24-44 Cummington Mall, on Boston University’s Charles River Campus. We are comprised of 35 separate research laboratories and 5 research centers. The research can be characterized by a combination of
- empirical and theoretical work with an attention to explicit mathematical models for the phenomena under study,
- intensive use of computational methods for modeling and simulating experimental and theoretical work,
- a basic scientific flavor to the fundamental questions being asked,
- an attention to the applications of the work to the improvement of health care, and a thorough understanding of the underlying physiological processes.
