Michigan has been pushing forward the field of biomedical engineering for over 50 years, with incredible technological contributions like ECMO, the silicon neural probe, and the spherocentric knee, to the world-class education of today’s top biomedical engineering minds.
From an engineered scaffold to aid in the early detection of breast cancer metastasis, to a controlled form of ultrasound to non-invasively destroy bad tissue in the body, to a determined mission to enable neural control of prosthetics, Michigan Biomedical Engineering is developing incredible solutions to the worlds most pressing biological and medical challenges.
Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan is poised to make incredible impact in the fields of engineering, biology and medicine in the years and decades ahead, from innovations in undergraduate and graduate education to groundbreaking research.

Has the Olympics changed how it measures false-starts in track? A Q&A with a biomechanics expert who has researched reaction times
August 30, 2018
In 2011, James Ashton-Miller, a Michigan Engineer, helped reveal that Olympic starting-line technology created a different experience for male and female sprinters. It did not accurately detect false starts by women. His latest work provides insights into what may, or may not, have happened since.Read more »
