Research

Engineering for health research

Our healthcare engineering covers a broad range of activities, from novel, leading edge medical device technologies and cell therapy manufacturing, to sports technology and human performance engineering interventions for paralympians and wearable robotics for healthcare applications. The research is cross disciplinary and translational in its approaches.

Activities we address include but are not limited to:

  • Design simulation and manufacture of sporting goods
  • Cell therapy manufacture
  • Bio-manufacturing
  • Healthcare supply chain
  • Manufacture for cell and tissue based therapies
  • Human-robotic integration
  • Process oriented cGMP research
