Medical and Healthcare Technology Research
The University of Bradford has for many years been involved in cutting edge research in medical engineering and healthcare technology.
The medical engineering research team at Bradford specialises in clinically orientated translational research and has a strong track record in:
- Clinical biomechanics
- Tissue mechanics
- Vision and mobility
- Neurovascular disease
- Epidemiological modelling
- Infection control
Members of the team have close ties with the Polymer Engineering IRC at Bradford, enabling a holistic approach to the development of new biomaterials and healthcare technologies. As such, the team is a multidisciplinary cluster dedicated to the application of engineering principles and techniques within the medical and healthcare sector.
The medical engineering research team at Bradford is unique in that it brings together engineers, materials scientists and mathematical modelers, with clinicians, biologists and biophysicists, to produce a strong, truly multidisciplinary team, which has collaborative links with hospitals and universities around the world.
