The Centre for Biological Engineering (CBE) at Loughborough University is a multi-disciplinary research centre, bridging the fields of engineering, biology and medicine and integrating the research work of two departments: the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering.
Operational since 2009, the CBE benefits from a suite of laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art facilities.
A product of Loughborough University’s forward-thinking approach to cross-departmental collaboration in research the CBE brings together world-class researchers in the fields of healthcare and biological engineering, working towards the scientific discovery and application of medical processes, techniques, and interventions for the advancement of patient therapy, outcome, and wellbeing.
The Centre for Biological Engineering (CBE) aims at building new capability and capacity at the interface of engineering, medicine and biology, with a view to realising the potential of regenerative medicine, medical and diagnostic devices, biohybrid organs and cell technologies for improving human health. To this end, as well as undertaking cutting edge research, our academics are involved in undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc) research-informed and research-supported teaching programmes to train the next generation of scientists and engineers.
