Auckland Bioengineering Institute
The Auckland Bioengineering Institute is developing engineering approaches to facilitate better understanding of biological function and provide the basis for new approaches to medical diagnosis and therapy.
Over the past decade, clinical medicine and biomedical science have been transformed by the emergence of revolutionary new technologies. Developments in imaging enable us to characterise structure and function in cells, tissues organs and the living body in exquisite detail.
To integrate this information we need to develop comprehensive models of human biology based on quantitative descriptions of anatomic structure and biophysical processes which reach down to the genetic level. The Auckland Bioengineering Institute is playing a leading role in this initiative and also in the novel exploitation of imaging technologies.
