Interested on working a full-year on a biomedical engineering research project of your choice?

Biomedical engineering is an exciting and constantly evolving field trying to answer challenging questions in healthcare and support clinicians in their decision-making. To cope with this challenge requires progress in fields such as medicine, biology, engineering, physics, information technologies, applied mathematics, to name only a few. Biomedical engineering is the interface that integrates these fields to jointly solve a given problem, with most interesting tasks strongly involving research and innovation. 

The field of biomedical engineering offers a huge variety of interesting topics to work on, differently weighting technological, medical and biological concepts depending on the application. However, something in common in most interesting biomedical engineering projects nowadays is the relevant role of computational tools for data processing, interpretation, integration, modelling and visualization, to name a few. Examples of these computational tools include medical data analysis with classical image/signal processing or machine learning techniques, the different modelling phases involved in the development of medical devices, multi-scale computational models to simulate human organs and systems and for synthetic biology or advanced visualization techniques such as 3D printing and augmented/virtual reality interfaces, etc.; these can be used for biomarker extraction, improve diagnosis, guide minimally-invasive interventions, perform population-based statistics or give treatment recommendations in key clinical fields such as in neurology, cardiology or oncology, among others. 

This vast amount of possibilities defines the philosophy behind the CBEM MSc, empowering and giving flexibility to the student to choose and work on the research topic of her/his interest, with the academic team supporting and helping to find a student-tailored project to work during the whole year duration of the MSc.
