Center for Biomedical Engineering

The University of New Mexico's Center for Biomedical Engineering (CBME) was established in 2005 to coordinate the specialized research of engineers, scientists, and clinicians. The center conducts biomedical research on a wide array of topics, organizes hands-on outreach workshops to students in the community, and is involved in exciting and groundbreaking research with national laboratories, industry, and other educational institutions.

The Center for Biomedical Engineering aims to develop new technical innovations, enabled by research at the interface of engineering and medicine, that will produce transformational advances in the delivery, efficacy and cost containment of health care. Our center and its researchers are dedicated to:

  • Developing fundamental research and applications with positive impacts on health-care solutions
  • Training new generations of researchers who can contribute to the solution of long-term biomedical challenges in the state, as well as nationally and internationally
  • Supporting New Mexico's community of biomedical innovators, including providing tools, capabilities and workforce needed by the state's biotechnology industry
