Medical Device, Cardiovascular Engineering, Neuroscience, Prognostics and Health Management

The inclusive leitmotif of this cross disciplinary translational research group is to analyse, design, develop and exploit current and next generation medical technologies. The group’s activity is centred on the University’s Faculty of Engineering & Built Environment, a research facility based on the campus. The group has positioned itself in a number of research and developments in cardiovascular and neuroscience research. Our researchers are working at the current advancements in healthcare engineering, pushing the borders in areas where cutting-edge engineering innovation has the potential to transform patient monitoring. Interdisciplinarity is at the essential of what we do and our work cuts across multiple research fields. Collaboration encourages fresh perspectives and the application of technologies to new areas. We bring together engineering experts and medical specialists to focus on some of the growing health challenges.
