Biomedical Engineering Program
- Thorough understanding of sensing mechanism. Before developing new detection systems, we put significant efforts in thoroughly studying their underlying physics. This critical task determines the feasibility of a proposed system, and estimates its fundamental limit.
- Engineering solution for robust operation. When implementing the actual systems, we strive to make them highly reliable and easy-to-use. Much emphasis is placed on system reproducibility, packaging, and user-interface.
- Multidisciplinary projects. We value working on multidisciplinary, large-scale projects that tackle challenging problems in biophysics and medicine. Such projects could be a venue for inspiring new technologies as well as expanding the use of emerging technologies. Researchers can also be motivated by new opportunities and interdisciplinary training, rather than being tunneled into a narrow specialty.
Many new diagnostic technologies have resulted from these efforts, and we are actively pursing their clinical translations.
