Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering

About us

The Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) is one of the world's top 10 bioengineering research institutes.

With a goal of 50 active years after 50 we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of an ageing population, it is our belief that our second 50 years can be as active as the first.

Driven by clinical challenges, we undertake solution focused pioneering research and education in the fields of medical devices and regenerative medicine, innovating and translating novel therapies into practical clinical applications.

Our expertise is in the area of musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems with our research focusing on three main areas - Joint Replacement, Tissue Re-engineering and Functional Spinal Interventions.

One of our major strengths is the truly multidisciplinary nature of our team. By proactively combining the expertise of scientists, engineers, medics and clinicians we are, through working together, better able to translate scientific discovery and research into practical clinical application.

We welcome enquiries from potential PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and academic collaborators. Please contact the Institute Director.
