Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering technology to provide solutions for biomedicine, such as medical and diagnostic instruments. It is a typical interdisciplinary field and is regarded as one of the most promising disciplines in the world. In this area, we mainly engage in brain neuroscience, medical imaging and physiological signal processing through the development and use of electronic, Internet of Things and information technologies. Among them, the main self-developed technologies include human body communication for implanted devices to access the Internet of Things, low-power, low-noise nerve cell signal front-end amplifiers, optrodes for optogenetic, ultrasonic sensors, and multitasking microprocessor for wearable / portable devices.
We have now three main laboratories, “Biomedical Engineering Laboratory”, “Biomedical Imaging Laboratory” and “E-Home Healthcare Engineering Laboratory”. Our current researches include “Optogenetic” to study the brain function and behavior, “Brain-Computer Interface” to control the computer by directly use of brain waves, “Imaging / Signal Processing” to improve medical image quality, and provide assistance in medical diagnosis. We have undertaken research projects of the Ministry of Science and Technology and won numerous international paper awards.
