  • Institute of Biomedical Engineering

    The Institute of Biomedical Engineering (iBME) at the University of Tennessee has been established to research solutions to medical problems such as devices for improved delivery of medications and monitoring of patients; better imaging technology; regenerative models to help the body heal itself; and optimized efficiency in the healthcare setting.  This new institute connects not only engineering and medicine but also multiple diverse university campuses in a collaboration that is unique in the country; innovative for UT faculty, physicians and students; and beneficial to people everywhere.

    iBME provides a unique opportunity for UT to respond to the growing demand for education and research opportunities in the rapidly expanding field of biomedical engineering. Researchers work collaboratively with scientists, physicians, faculty, and students from many UT disciplines to research today’s medical problems, resulting in better healthcare for the state and beyond.

    The goals of iBME include generating cross-disciplinary teams to develop healthcare innovations and discover new research funding; to offer a multidisciplinary curriculum and real-world medical experiences to engineering students; to provide a regional resource to improve the general public’s understanding of biomedical engineering; and to establish outreach to area educators and students to develop interest in and knowledge of the field.

    Research focus areas include molecular, cellular, and tissue engineering; healthcare engineering and environmental health; and imaging, biomechanics, and sensors. iBME will also feature MS and PhD programs in biomedical engineering that include specialization tracks in the three research focus areas.

    Molecular, Cellular, and Tissue Engineering

    The Molecular, Cellular, and Tissue Engineering research focus includes investigations into Cellular Engineering, Regenerative Medicine, Biomaterials, Drug Delivery, Molecular Bioengineering, and Synthetic and Systems Biology.

    Healthcare Engineering and Environmental Health

    Healthcare Engineering and Environmental Health research is targeted toward system-level explorations like operating room optimization, patient informatics, diagnosis and treatment protocols, medical simulation, health studies, and environmental public health tracking.

    Imaging, Biomechanics, and Sensors

    Research in the Imaging, Biomechanics, and Sensors focus is primarily technology-driven in the areas of Orthopaedic Bioengineering, Medical Sensors, Biotechnology, and Medical Imaging.
