About Washington University in St. Louis
Our highly-ranked department benefits from a longstanding, extensive and collegial partnership with our world-renowned School of Medicine. The research in our department can generally be captured in seven different areas that include biomedical and biological imaging, regenerative engineering in medicine, molecular and cellular systems engineering, neural engineering, cardiovascular engineering, orthopedic engineering and cancer. All of these areas have a critical mass of faculty within the department, as well as amongst our more than eighty affiliated faculty, to provide rich research and training opportunities. Research in these areas is stimulated by interdisciplinary research centers within the department, such as the Center for Biological Systems Engineering and the Cardiac Bioelectricity and Arrhythmia Center, as well as numerous centers at the world-renowned Washington University School of Medicine. The department faculty garnered > $15 million in extramural funding during 2015, and continues to be one of the leading departments in funding from the National Institutes of Health.
