One of the strengths of the Centre, and a significant attraction for researchers, is the ‘state-of-the-art’ facility. This was made possible through the initial endowment to the Institute of Biomedical Engineering that recognised the importance of the infrastructure, laboratories and equipment needed to make it a Centre of excellence not only in research but in the technology transfer essential to fulfilling the Centre’s aims.

Research Laboratories

The Centres includes four research laboratories specifically aligned to key application areas in Bio-Inspired Medical Device Technology:

  • Laboratory for Early Detection: Microfluidics, CMOS lab-on-chip devices, biosensors.
  • Laboratory for Diagnostics & Monitoring: Smart/RF sensors, implantable and wearable devices.
  • Laboratory for Neuroprosthetics: Neural interface technology and devices for neurorehabilitation.
  • Laboratory for Metabolic Technology: Glucose sensing, insulin regulation, diabetes management.

Research Facilities

The Centre hosts several core research facilities which are equipped to very high specification:
