Biomedical Engineering - BME
Strategic research project of the University of Oulu
Focus Institute: Infotech Oulu
Faculty: Information Technology and Electrical Engineering
The mission of the Biomedical Engineering Group (BME) is to carry out top-level basic, applied and translational research in biomedical engineering. The aim is to develop, apply and evaluate novel biomedical measurement technologies in health and wellbeing. The research is interdisciplinary, and focuses on measurement problems with the cardiovascular system, central nervous system, respiratory system and musculoskeletal system, together with applications in biomedicine and eHealth. The research profile is based on linking information technology and medicine, with an aim to utilize methodologies of information engineering, signal and image processing, pattern recognition, biophysics, medical imaging, applied mathematics, simulation, biomedicine and clinical medicine. BME has strong national and international collaborative networks, including partners in the USA, Japan and many European universities.
