Biomedical Engineering Research Guide

A collection of library and web resources for biomedical engineering classwork and research.


Engineers who specialize in biomaterials study naturally occurring or laboratory-designed substances for use in medical devices and implants. Some specific examples of biomaterials include artificial heart valves, contact lenses, hernia mesh, pacemakers, skin grafts, cochlear implants, and joint replacements. The modern field of biomaterials combines medicine, biology, physics, and chemistry. The field has grown significantly in the past decade due to discoveries in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
