Like all PhD programs, research is at the heart of the Johns Hopkins BME doctorate. Although research in the Hopkins BME PhD program falls broadly into the seven core focus areas described below, there is extensive overlap between these areas. Most of the research in the BME program is highly interdisciplinary, and our students form strong research collaborations with scientists, engineers, and clinicians from Johns Hopkins University and leading academic institutions from around the world.
