Biomedical Devices

Spurred by investments in faculty and facilities at UConn Health in Farmington, the University of Connecticut is rapidly emerging as an innovator in the field of biomedical devices. Biomedical devices blend traditional engineering techniques with biological sciences and medicine to improve the quality of human health and life. Opportunities for industry partnerships exist through our School of Engineering and through faculty experts in the life sciences.
