The Mission of Bioengineering

The mission of the Bioengineering department is to create a fusion of engineering and the life sciences that promotes scientific discovery and the invention of new technologies and therapies through research and education.

Research Themes

Bioengineering research at Stanford revolves around the tenets of measure, model, make — of, for and with biology. 

Stanford-Coulter Translational Research Grants Program

Stanford University has partnered with the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation through an award to the Department of Bioengineering, one of nine awards nationwide. The Stanford-Coulter Translational Research Grants Program supports collaborative translational research projects headed by Bioengineering faculty members and their clinician researcher collaborators from the School of Medicine.

Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign

The Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign is widely regarded as one of the most successful partnerships between academia and the health technology industry anywhere. Stanford Bio-X provides the ideal setting for the interdisciplinary program, with its intersecting laboratories and connections across the schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Business.
