About us

The Department of Bioengineering combines interdisciplinary skills from natural sciences, engineering, and medicine to invent, innovate, and advance technological solutions that enable individualized precision measurements and processing of biological information for the promotion of healthcare.

Our central aims are to:

  • Enable novel biomedical readouts by reshaping next-generation hardware and theoretical and algorithmic developments for sensors, imaging and microscopy and by engineering biological contrast using genetically expressed chromo proteins and genetic labels.

  • Accelerate discovery and validation by employing advanced observation tools for in vivo sensing, imaging, omics and single-cell processing, with a focus on combining dynamic observations in living systems with functional genomics.

  • Advance prevention of disease, early detection, advanced diagnostics, improved intervention, and precise therapy monitoring by efficiently translating advanced sensors and imaging systems technology toward clinical use.
