University of Sydney launches new School of Biomedical Engineering


The University of Sydney today announced the launch of its new School of Biomedical Engineering, investing in the development of advanced biomedical technologies such as lab-grown organs, bionic eyes and implantable medical devices.

Becoming the sixth school within the Faculty of Engineering, the School has been established to facilitate collaborative research and teaching within the field of biomedical engineering, which combines a range of disciplines including medicine, engineering and life sciences.

Included in the School’s arsenal of state-of-the-art infrastructure is the Sydney Bionics Translation Centre, a laboratory which provides cleanroom and prototyping capabilities; the Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Innovative Bioengineering which includes a musculoskeletal tissue engineering laboratory; and a high-energy plasma research laboratory that will be used for therapeutic innovations that involve specialised surfaces.

Future students can benefit from the best infrastructure and having top academics doing leading research in this area.
