Bioscience and Bioengineering
Interdisciplinary bioscience and bioengineering research, or bio-research, is the newest of collaborative research areas at UD. Bio-research initiatives are active in many areas including curriculum development, research, and multidisciplinary efforts with both internal and external partners. With significant NIH funding, the Center for Tissue Regeneration and Engineering at Dayton (TREND) was named a Center of Excellence by the State of Ohio in 2010. The TREND Center has developed important partnerships and conducts groundbreaking research in tissue engineering, nanotoxicology, and the mechanical properties of biological materials.
Other leading edges of bio-research at UD reflect the diversity of expertise available including biometrics in the Vision Lab, biomechanics in the Engineering Wellness & Safety Lab, biosensors, biofuels, biomaterials and biotronics. Our alliances with the Air Force Research Laboratory and Community Tissue Services in Dayton are also providing new avenues for bio-research. We continue to look for opportunities to apply our world class expertise in physical science and engineering to challenges in the life sciences. Likewise, our biology researchers work in an interdisciplinary team-based environment and welcome opportunities to partner in research investigations.
