Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute, the NSF-supported Mathematical Biosciences Institute, and the Ohio Supercomputer Center provide unique and comprehensive resources for biomedical engineering research and education at Ohio State.

Our engineering domain expertise spans Bioimaging, Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Biotransport, Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Engineering and Biomedical Micro/Nano Technology. We use our engineering expertise in these domains to address human health-related problems in cancer, cardiovascular and pulmonary medicine, regenerative medicine, neurosciences, visual sciences, and musculoskeletal disorders. In addition, we look to build expertise in solutions for the emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases. This position is partially funded by Ohio State's Discovery Themes, a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas in which the university can build on its culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact.
