What is BME?

Biomedical engineering (BME) is an interdisciplinary field that bridges engineering, math, and physics with biology and the life sciences. Biomedical engineers apply their expertise in these areas to solve problems related to medicine and healthcare, developing new technologies to understand, diagnose, and treat disease. Biomedical engineering is a broad and growing field that encompasses everything from surgical robotics and prosthetics to drug delivery systems and artificial organs.

Hopkins BME offers a variety of focus areas that have immense potential to impact patient lives, such as Biomedical Data Science, Computational Medicine, Genomics & Systems Biology, Imaging & Medical Devices, Immunoengineering, Neuroengineering, and Translational Cell & Tissue Engineering.
