Why Research Matters

Research creates and advances knowledge that transforms discovery into new treatments, cures and better patient care.   

Our research is:

  • Developing new tools for diagnosing and treating disease 
  • Bringing together scientists from medicine, engineering and computer science to develop biomechanical and biomedical materials
  • Using big data to better understand the human body
  • Training the next generation of health professionals
