Our graduate students are an integral part of this active and multidisciplinary research environment, cultivated by our knowledgeable and inquisitive faculty.

Bioengineering research at Lehigh focuses on three central themes:

BIOCOMPUTATIONS AND MODELING

Biocomputations and ModelingFrom molecular modeling and bioinformatics at the biomolecular scale, through modeling of cells, tissues, and biofluids, to health informatics, computational and data sciences are revolutionizing bioengineering.

Areas of research include: Biomolecular Modeling, Bioinformatics, Bioengineering Systems & Controls, Biophysics, Modeling of Biological Systems, Computational Bioengineering, Data Analytics and Biomedical Image Analysis

 

DIAGNOSTICS, SENSORS & DEVICES

The development of diagnostic and sensing devices that help to identify, treat, and prevent disease are reshaping the delivery of medical care.

Areas of research include: Biomedical Imaging, Biophotonics, BioMEMS, Biosensors, Microfluidics, Bioelectronics, Medical Devices

 

MATERIALS AND THERAPIES

Many novel therapies are enabled by biomaterials innovation at the molecular through micro-scales. It’s a field situated squarely at an intersection of disciplines where Lehigh enjoys significant, demonstrable strength.

Areas of research include: Biomaterials, Molecular Bioengineering, Biopharmaceutical Engineering, Cell & Tissue Engineering, Neuroengineering, Biofluid & Solid Mechanics, Biomolecular & Cellular Mechanics, Environmental Bioengineering
