Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to Our Coulter Translational Partners Program

The Department of Bioengineering is dedicated to discoveries and innovations that impact the world.  Translational research, work specifically designed to increase the impact of discoveries, for example by developing products that benefit people, is a natural component of these efforts. From molecular bioengineering to cellular, tissue, organism and devices, our efforts in translational research range as broadly as the field of bioengineering itself.  The “grand Coulter experiment” is thriving, and continues to support inventive researchers through research grants and mentoring. In partnership with the Coulter Foundation, the program is succeeding in the translation of novel ideas to create new methods, techniques, and devices and to bring these to society so they can have the broadest possible impact.
