Developing Novel Programs in Biomedical Engineering

Creating a Clinical and Translational Biomedical Engineering Program

Full Project Name:Developing Novel Programs in a Joint Biomedical Engineering DepartmentPrinciple Investigator:Andrew Greene, PhD, Biomedical EngineeringAward Amount:$2,000,000
Award Date
October2016
Project Duration:60 months

Project Description Narrative:


As health care reforms continue in our state and nation, it is essential that patients receive high-quality care in a safe and cost-effective manner. To achieve this, innovative and transformative approaches to managing health conditions are needed, calling for professionals who can practice at this intersection of disciplines and who are capable of advancing innovations from conception to clinical practice.

Through this funding, MCW will create a Clinical and Translational Biomedical Engineering Program, aiming to increase partnerships between faculty researchers, clinicians, engineers, and experienced industry advisers who will work together to design, build and test devices and approaches to solve clinical problems. Through a focus on high-value biomedical devices that are both highly efficient and low cost, the program will seek to have strong impact on community and home-based case initiatives to support the health of the people of Wisconsin. A long-term aim to develop programs in cellular engineering and bio-manipulation will seek to support ongoing efforts to develop novel therapeutic options, affording the people of Wisconsin access to the latest developments in health care.
