Welcome to Duke BME

Consistently ranked as one of the top biomedical engineering programs in the nation, Duke BME combines a hands-on educational experience and an interdisciplinary research environment that prepares graduates to be leaders in integrating engineering and biology to detect and treat human diseases.

A unique aspect of the program is the integration of research and education. Over two-thirds of the undergraduates are involved in independent study research. The doctoral program offers students early immersion into research. Due to the proximity of the Medical School and Health System, collaborative projects provide opportunities for students to do research with Medical School faculty. BME faculty are actively involved in various Centers and Institutes throughout the University, providing a very rich research and educational environment. The Coulter Translational Research Fund provides support for promising research that has the potential to address an unmet clinical need.  

Current departmental research activities include biomechanics of cells and hard and soft tissues; injury biomechanics; biomolecular and tissue engineering; electrical activity of the heart; neural engineering; biomedical optics, biophotonics and ultrasound imaging systems
