The Departmentof Biomedical Engineering conducts research at the experimental and clinical level. As well as investigating pathophysiological processes through engineering techniques, the department also develops innovative treatment strategies.

ObJECTIVES

  • Understanding the mechanisms involved in the progression of chronic renal diseases
  • Understanding the role of hemodynamics in the development of vascular damage
  • Developing laboratory techniques for tissue engineering
  • Developing information systems for controlled clinical trials and clinical practice

METHODOLOGICAL APPROACHES

  • Theoretical models
  • Diagnostic and histological imaging
  • Measurements of physical and chemical parameters in experimental as well as clinical settings
  • Computerised microtomography
  • Cell cultures
  • Biomaterials
  • Apps for archiving and processing clinical data that are developed by the department

Results
  • The mechanisms responsible for the progression of chronic kidney disease
  • The role of hemodynamics in the development of vascular damage
  • Laboratory techniques for tissue engineering
  • Developing information systems for managing clinical data and images generated in controlled clinical trials and in clinical practice
