Welcome to the Institute of Bioengineering
At Queen Mary University of London, we believe that a diversity of ideas helps us achieve the previously unthinkable.
The Institute of Bioengineering was established in 2013, bringing together academics from different disciplines to address the heathcare challenges of the future.
It provides a hub for ground-breaking research that leads to the development of new medical technologies, such as organ-on-a-chip devices which are poised to revolutionise the testing of new drugs.
The Institute takes world-leading innovation and transforms it into clinical use that changes people’s lives. We promote the development of interdisciplinary research into successful products for the biomedical engineering industry, such as the ground-breaking re-mineralising toothpaste designed to treat dentine hypersensitivity and protect teeth from tooth decay.
Our collaborative approach to research and commitment to high quality training and education cultivate ideas that deliver the previously unthinkable, and create a lasting real-world impact.

Coronavirus update (April 2020)
The UK Government has announced that everyone must stay at home and only go outside for food, health reasons or work – if they are unable to do so from home. Queen Mary remains open, however there is now no face-to-face interaction. We are transitioning as much as we can of our research activity online, and advising staff to work remotely where this is possible. Guidance for research staff and students is available here.
