BME Department Research Areas/Domains

Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University started as a graduate program in 1971, with a focus on signal processing. Over the years, the program's focus has evolved and expanded.

Currently, we host six research domain areas as described below. 

Our research and educational offerings center around these domains with a significant emphasis on translational research and the application of these techniques to address problems in different fields of medicine and health including cancer, cardiopulmonary, and ocular areas to name a few. Our research programs are enhanced by significant collaboration with faculty and colleagues across campus, including The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and the Colleges of Engineering, Veterinary Medicine, and Dentistry. Many faculty members have joint appointments in the College of Medicine and have laboratory space in the Wexner Medical Center (e.g., Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute).

Below is a Research Matrix summarizing the expertise of some (not all) of the department faculty and affiliated graduate faculty who advise our graduate students, organized by their health science application areas.
