Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering are two partially overlapping but distinct fields of study and work.
Bioengineering is a science-based discipline focused on biology and creates a connection between biology and engineering. It sets out to apply the scientific knowledge to relevant problems in an effective and efficient way. Biomimetic is the sub-discipline of Bioengineering that deals with the transfer of biological models and systems to the design of machines and materials. Systems Biology is another sub-discipline that utilizes the engineering knowledge to discover structures, functions and operation methods of biological systems.
Biomedical Engineering is concerned with applying the biological science to medical innovation and bridges the gap between engineering and medicine with the purpose of improving the healthcare area. Amazing progress and development has been made in the fields of diagnosis and therapy thanks to the newly established discipline of Biomedical Engineering through the production of advanced medical equipment and devices that incorporate the biological dimension. Bio prostheses, micro implants, imaging machinery like the MRI and tissue growth are some of the notable achievements of this study field. Bringing engineering to a new level, Biomedical Engineering offers unlimited research, development and growth perspectives.
The main objective of this PhD programme is to ensure that a PhD holder in this field is provided with systematic understanding and skills in an area lying in the intersection of Live Sciences and Engineering, with high prospects for targeting a scientific and technological revolution in the XXI century. This program is offered as part of the MIT-Portugal initiative.
We are seeking to fill one PhD position in the optofluidics group at DTU-Nanotech, Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The basic aim is to develop a micro- and nanofludidic platform for single cell genomics. In this project we will focus on micro and nanofluidic devices that can be fabricated by injection moulding and can perform single cell and single molecule DNA analysis.
The Institute of Immunology (NUI Maynooth), in partnership with the School of Biochemistry (Trinity College Dublin) and Division of Infection and Immunity (Queens University Belfast) has recently been awarded funding for a HRB PhD Scholars programme in Immunology
Phd in Biomedical Sciences
The Tissue Regeneration and Stem Cells research group covers two distinct but overlapping areas. Those working in the area of tissue regeneration, combining tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, are developing living cell-based biological approaches to aid the repair and regeneration of damaged and diseased tissues. This is a strongly interdisciplinary field of research, which combines the skills of cell, molecular and matrix biologists in the Faculty of Life Sciences with expertise in other Faculties including material, engineering and physical scientists and clinical and surgical specialists.
The overall aim of this project is to provide long-term stable coated cantilever-like and Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) sensors for label free sensing in waste water and blood plasma.
The White Rose Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York have been awarded £6m to fund a 5-year Doctoral Training Centre in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.
O Programa de Doutoramento em Engenharia Biomédica é um programa multi-disciplinar resultante da colaboração institucional entre o IST e a Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa. É um programa inovador e singular no panorama nacional e internacional, sustentando a inovação tecnológica em conjunto com a recente evolução nas ciências da vida, e as exigências actuais no sistema de saúde.
The 3-year PhD programme comprises the research project leading to a Ph.D. thesis as well as additional compulsory modules, work-groups and optional lecture courses, all of which offer a highly challenging, useful and interesting education programme.
This doctoral programme is governed by the Royal Decree 56/2005 and carries the 'Distinction of Quality', awarded by the Ministry of Education and Science from the academic year 2006-2007 (ref. MCD2006-00343).
