In Bioengineering at Illinois, we continue to foster valuable relationships with clinical partners to help expand our footprint in translational medicine. Our partnerships include the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Carle Clinic and its Mills Breast Cancer Center in Urbana, Ill., the Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center and the OSF-St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Ill. Faculty are conducting research in these locations or in collaboration with researchers based in these facilities, students have fellowships associated with these partners, and these relationships are helping add to the body of knowledge in translating research into clinical application.
Illinois enjoys longstanding strengths in imaging, biosensors and bionanotechnology, mechanobiology and biophysics; growing strengths in sythetic bioengineering, computational and systems medicine, and regenerative medicine; and connections to interdisciplinary research institutes and centers on campus. Our continuing commitment to move research to the clinic is a significant component in achieving our aspiration of having a profound biomedical and translational impact on medicine and health.
