Orthopedics. Tissue modeling.  Even the future of robotic microsurgery. Purdue’s focus on Bioengineering brings many disciplines together at world-class facilities.  Biomechanics can be tested on a human scale, while cutting-edge disease detection and treatment can be explored on the nanoscopic level.  Whether it’s the impact of a car seat on someone’s posture, or the impact of pharmacology on microorganisms, Purdue researchers are at the forefront of Bioengineering.
