Welcome to the Biomedical Engineering program at Delaware!
Biomedical engineering applies fundamental engineering principles to the study of biology, medicine and health. Our undergraduate program provides a broad background in chemical, mechanical, materials science and electrical engineering, and it prepares students for careers in biomedical research with a quantitative engineering emphasis. It is also designed to provide students with sufficient coursework for advanced training at graduate, medical or physical therapy schools or in other allied health professions. Our graduate program builds upon the established biomedical research strength at the University and trains future generations of researchers and professionals who will play a key role in multi- and interdisciplinary teams that bridge the gap between engineering and the biological sciences.
Scientists have long believed that the amount of HIV in a person’s blood indicates if the virus is actively reproducing.
However, Ryan Zurakowski's research team reports new evidence that hidden virus replication may be occurring within the body’s tissue, despite undetectable virus levels in the blood. (Posted 5/9/13)
