Life Science and Bioingineering
One of the most widely used definitions for bioengineering is "a discipline that uses engineering methodologies and technologies to address life science issues". Bioengineering is therefore a highly interdisciplinary discipline, requiring collaboration between technologists and professionals in the biological and medical area. In general, bioengineering aims, from the research point of view, to increase knowledge about the functioning of biological systems and from the application point of view to design and develop tools with the ultimate aim of improving clinical practice, the doctor-patient relationship, and the well-being of the population as a whole.
There are several areas of research in bioengineering, which in our Department also cover very different topics, such as models of physiological systems, the analysis of data, images and biomedical signals, the management of the same in information systems, bioinformatics, synthetic biology, cell and tissue engineering, decision support systems, telemedicine and telemonitoring, biomedical instrumentation, clinical engineering. The Department is also a member of the CHT (Center for Health Technology), where scientific initiatives are promoted in collaboration with all other life science departments. The proximity of the Department to three IRCCS (Institutes of Hospitalization and Cure with a Scientific Character) and to the CNAO adrotherapeutic center allow researchers to develop systems in close contact with those who represent the end users of the systems themselves, with evident gains in efficiency and quality of research.
