The Department of Biomedical Engineering provides cutting-edge engineering research and teaching within the Division of Imaging Sciences, enhancing the Division’s existing international reputation.
Our main objective is to perform high-quality multidisciplinary research internationally. There is a close and vital relationship in our work between problem solving in clinical and biomedical application areas and methodological research in biomedical engineering technologies and information processing.
Through our translation of technology, we will support a shift from using predefined clinical indices to determine treatment options to true personalisation of care that is based on quantifying an individual’s specific physiology.
The Division of Imaging Sciences is working to combine critical mass of basic science and clinical research with an outward-looking translational approach. Our research activity focuses on accelerating this by integrating intelligent image and data acquisition with quantitative tools in both clinical and basic science contexts.
We are combining cardiovascular, oncology and pulmonary disease applications with new areas of research. The goal of this work is to help gain the full value from state-of-the-art imaging and measurement tools and the information they produce.
Our specialist areas include:
- multi-scale and multi-physics computational modelling;
- PET and MR image acquisition, processing and reconstruction;
- systems biology, simulation of cell signalling and regulation;
- biomedical image acquisition, reconstruction and analysis;
- high-performance computation and visualisation for biomedical applications;
- bioinstrumentation and device development;
- multi-modality image processing; and
- numerical analysis and parameter estimation.
