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 as a cross-faculty initiative bringing together academics from Science & Engineering and Medicine & Dentistry at Queen Mary. It provides a hub for ground-breaking research aimed at the development of new medical technologies in order to meet key healthcare challenges of the 21st Century, such as organ-on-a-chip devices which are poised to revolutionise the testing of new drugs.
The Institute translates world-leading innovation into clinical use to provide benefits to patients, promoting the development of interdisciplinary research into successful products for the biomedical engineering industry as seen in a novel re-mineralising toothpaste designed to treat dentine hypersensitivity and protect teeth from tooth decay.
Its research fields include; Smart NanoBiomaterials, Biomechanics and Mechanobiology, Predictive Bioengineering, Therapeutic Bioengineering, Biosensing, Diagnostics and Imaging.
Our research and commitment to high quality training and education aims to cultivate ideas to deliver the previously unthinkable, and create a lasting real-world impact.
