CBME Mission

The Center for Biomedical Engineering's mission is threefold:

  1. To oversee the undergraduate BME concentration and the BME graduate program (ScM & PhD) and to innovate (with scientific rigor, cross-cutting disciplinary content) the BME curriculum to achieve a "Brown-style academic enrichment" - as an educational paradigm for the field.

  2. To foster and enhance research synergy, connectivity and funding across the Brown University community; from the engineering/physical sciences through the life sciences on campus to the medical school and local hospitals; and to build connections with other centers at Brown (IMNI, BSP, VA Center).

  3. To enhance the off-campus interface of Brown's BME community to industry, foundations, government labs, other academic institutions and the public health care sector.
