Bioengineering for Clinical Medicine

Bioengineering for Clinical Medicine is a research area that involves the design and development of technological products devoted to support clinicians in their daily job: diagnosing, pathology treatment, rehabilitation and research. The maturity of biomedical engineering as a well-established research field, together with the rapid development of medical technologies and the continuous growth of the aging population that these technologies serves, are key factors for the tremendous development of this research field. Among all, three main fields are proposed in this MRU: biosensors and bioelectronics, integrated systems for biomedical applications and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for clinical medicine. Activities include:

  • Implantable and minimum-invasive biomedical devices for clinical applications as well as innovative analog and digital synthetic biology circuits.
  • Advanced integrated systems for bioengineering applied to clinical medicine, through a highly interdisciplinary approach between technical sciences, biology and medicine.
  • Advanced bioengineering technology integration applied to health prevention and for better understanding and managing of diseases, together with physical therapies for rehabilitation.

Thanks to the synergies that have been created in the last years among SUPSI and some companies and institutes/hospitals, it is possible to offer to the students up-to-date lectures in the broad field of Bioengineering for Clinical Medicine as well as master theses and semester projects in one of the interdisciplinary research fields mentioned above with a real connection to the medical and industrial word.
