The Institute of Biomaterials & Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) at the University of Toronto is a multidisciplinary research community where engineering, medicine and dentistry investigators collaborate to develop innovative solutions that address global challenges in human health.
Located in the heart of Canada’s largest health-care research network, we offer three graduate degrees and a collaborative specialization certificate to 300 students who receive training in biomedical and clinical engineering from more than 100 faculty members across 24 academic and hospital partners.
IBBME also facilitates the biomedical engineering undergraduate minor, available to students across the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering as well as the biomedical systems engineering major for the Division of Engineering Science.
Our three research themes address some of the most critical challenges in modern health care. They guide our research and educational initiatives, and have led to our involvement with more than 20 start-up companies and integration with three major biomedical engineering commercialization ventures.
