Faculty members at the Rice University Department of Bioengineering have diverse research interests focused on establishing engineering principles and developing cutting-edge technologies to solve a host of life-science problems
Department faculty members and its students are involved in number of research initiatives focused on connecting basic science and engineering research with clinical applications. These efforts are bolstered by influential partnerships with the Texas Medical Center as well with research centers and institutes at Rice.
Our researchers and students collaborate with over 40 adjunct faculty, many of whom are located in the Texas Medical Center. Our faculty and students also benefit from collaborations with 19 joint-appointed Rice faculty members from the departments of biosciences, electrical and computer engineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, statistics, physics, chemistry, and materials science and nanoengineering.
