Biomedical Science and Engineering

Biomedical Science and Engineering

Head of Doctoral Program: Ernst Albin Hansen

The program focuses on basic science and engineering problems related to human health. To achieve this, combined knowledge from a large number of complementary disciplines is needed, such as electrical engineering, physics, mathematics, computer science, anatomy and physiology.

The research program is composed of inter-related disciplines within biomedical science and engineering with applications in neuroscience and in clinical systems. The main focus is on the human sensory-motor system and medical informatics. It comprises theoretical and experimental aspects, e.g. involving electrophysiology, biomechanics, psychophysics, biosignal processing, physiological models, and image analysis.

Research areas:

  • Integrative Neuroscience
  • Neural Engineering and Neurophysiology of Movement
  • Neurorehabilitation Technology
  • Pain and Motor Systems
  • Physical Activity and Human Performance
  • Model-based decision support
  • Medical Informatics
