The Bioengineering Department is currently home to 16 core faculty members. Our core faculty includes 4 AIMBE fellows, 2 AAAS fellows, 1 BMES fellow, 1 IEEE fellow, 1 SPIE fellow and 1 ISMRM fellow. Our research focuses on 5 cutting-edge and research areas: biomaterials/regenerative medicine, biomedical imaging, computational bioengineering, molecular and cellular bioengineering, and neuroengineering. Our interdisciplinary research and educational training effort extends through the Bioengineering Interdepartmental Graduate Program (BIG), which encompasses 50 additional UCR faculty members. The department offers BS, BS/MS, MS, and PhD degrees, with a current enrollment of approximately 75 graduate and 350 undergraduate students. Our graduate program is a gender-balanced blend of US and international students, with two-thirds of the PhD students being domestic, and of those, one-fourth are underrepresented minorities. The BS degree program in Bioengineering is fully accredited by ABET since 2011. Opportunities for collaboration exist through multiple college-level and campus-wide initiatives, including the School of Medicine, the College of Natural Sciences, Center for glial neuronal interactions, Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine, Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering, High-Performance Computing Center, Center for Research in Intelligent Systems, Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, Interdisciplinary Center for Quantitative Modeling in Biology, Stem Cell Center, and Center for Advanced Neuroimaging.
