Welcome to Penn State Bioengineering Events
The Institute for Biomedical Engineering is comprised of faculty from the departments of Surgery, Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, and Radiology. The Institute was formed within Penn State University's Program in Bioengineering in February 1998 with a Special Opportunity Grant from the Whitaker Foundation. The Institute's purpose is to educate graduate bioengineering students at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in the research and development of medical devices.
The Institute provides a distinct Program in Bioengineering within Penn State’s graduate bioengineering program as well as a unique academic infrastructure at the Hershey campus. This infrastructure includes office and laboratory space in the Biomedical Research Building dedicated to biomedical engineering education, teaching support, new courses, two-way access to courses between Hershey and University Park through distance learning technology, a biomedical engineering library, and available housing.
The primary research focus of the Institute is research and development of medical devices. The Hershey Medical Center is a unique environment for collaboration between engineers, clinicians, and the biomedical industry. Bioengineering faculty working in the departments of Surgery, Orthopedics, Radiology, and Anesthesia are involved, focusing on three specific research areas: prosthetic and therapeutic devices, diagnostics and imaging, and surgical devices and technology.
