‌‌‌‌Head of Division: Prof Manuel Salmeron-Sanchez

The Division Biomedical Engineering at the University of Glasgow brings together four important research themes in the areas of Advanced Medical Diagnostics, Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technologies, Biomaterials and Synthetic Biology.

Our Division benefits from strong links to industry as well as to the biomedical sciences and clinical medicine. For example, in the field of Rehabilitation following Spinal Cord Injury, we have a research centre placed within the Southern General Hospital.

We have just graduated our first cohort of bachelors (BEng and MEng) in Biomedical Engineering, the first such course in Scotland, and are also running a MSc this year.

The Division is currently home to 35 research students pursuing PhD in fields as diverse as infectious disease diagnostics for the Developing World, brain-computer interfaces, stem cell differentiation using nanotechnology, robots as orthotic aids, and the creation of artificial cells.
