Researchers in the Bioengineering Research Group develop innovative micro- and nanoscale devices and materials for the study of biological entities such as microorganisms, cells, proteins, DNA, and single molecules. The use of nanotechnology, combined with our state-of-art computational and imaging tools, enable us to pursue cutting-edge research in this research area.

The department is home to three bioengineering and biomedical research laboratories.
