Research Areas

Hui Meng at Toshiba Stroke Research Center.

Bioengineering research and teaching programs focus primarily on musculoskeletal and orthopedic biomechanics, cardiovascular biomechanics, biomaterials, simulation and computation of biological processes, and medical imaging. 

Mechanical engineering lab in Bell Hall.

Mechanics research at UB emphasizes the use of numerical methods to solve problems of solids, structures and biomechanics, including composite materials, as well as viscoelastic and biomaterials.

Faculty and students in lab.

Our design research focuses on the design of components, mechanisms, products and systems, and on the issues inherent in designing, prototyping and manufacturing them.

Engineering lab of Tarunraj Singh with Students in Furnas Hall.

The focus of this group is on modeling, identification, and control development and validation of a variety of electromechanical, biomedical and other systems applications.

Iman Borazjani.

The fluid and thermal sciences research area has both fundamental and applied studies in energy conversion, heat and mass transport, and bioengineering.
