Translational Research and Education Opportunities
Many of our faculty and students are involved in partnerships with clinical institutions, which enable them to gain access to fellowships, hands-on research, interdisciplinary collaborations, and entrepreneurial activity. These partnerships include:
Bioengineering was a driving force in the creation of the nation's first engineering-based school of medicine, the new Carle Illinois College of Medicine, which welcomed its first cohort of medical students in July 2018. Fourteen Bioengineering professors are also faculty members with Carle Illinois.
