Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME)
The Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) runs a range of networks to stimulate new interdisciplinary collaboration by bringing together Imperial's engineers, scientists and clinicians in particular application or technology areas of biomedical engineering. We also organise seminars, conferences and events to bring together network members and stimulate new interactions.
The IBME is driving an expansion in Rehabilitation Technologies to enable and facilitate cross disciplinary research. The IBME supports the activities of the Imperial Network of Excellence in Rehabilitation Technologies, led by Prof Dario Farina (FoE) and Dr Paul Bentley (FoM). The research programme involves a strong combination of multidisciplinary researchers from across Imperial College as well as collaboration with partner institutions and industry, working together to combine engineering technologies and clinical expertise.

The Sir Michael Uren Hub (BmE Hub)
Imperial is currently constructing a £120M 13-storey building comprising state-of-the-art laboratory and office facilities for the next generation of biomedical engineering research across technology and application themes.
Housing interdisciplinary research initiatives from across Imperial's departments and faculties, the building will drive clinical translation of MedTech innovation through integrated clinical and imaging facilities and by virtue of its proximity to the Hammersmith Hospital campus. Commercial translation will be promoted by the adjacent research and translation hub ('iHUB').
