Research at the Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub will help address some of the most pressing healthcare problems of our time. It will initially focus on seven core themes:

  • Musculoskeletal technology and rehabilitative medicine
  • Neuromuscular rehabilitation
  • Cardiovascular technology
  • Cancer technology
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Synthetic biology
  • Engineered medicines

Just some of the research projects that will find a home in the new building include studies to understand how the central nervous system encodes movements; the development of minimally invasive implants; and research into new materials that help the body to repair itself after surgery or injury.
