HMRC NSERC CREATE
The HMRC NSERC CREATE Training Program in Bone and Joint Health Technologies was born out of a partnership between Queen’s University and the University of Wisconsin, this program aims to integrate engineering principles, biological sciences, and information technology to solve patient oriented clinical problems through research that supports medical product development.The long-term objective of the research program is to develop a new generation of minimally invasive technologies for the long-term maintenance of joint health. Specifically, computer assisted techniques will be used to guide the design, fabrication, and implantation of patient-optimized, biologically enhanced materials at an early stage of degenerative disease. Projects are structured into three themes: Joint Health Assessment, Computer-assisted Reconstruction Technologies, and Tissue Repair Technologies.
The CREATE program will facilitate students’ transition to the workforce by building transferable research, interpersonal, and professional skills in a multidisciplinary setting. For more information visit their website at: http://www.queensu.ca/hmrc-create/index.html
NEW! Biomedical Engineering Program
Queen’s University has designed a collaborative program that allows graduate students at the Master’s or Doctoral level to access courses and expertise from Electrical, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering Departments. An interdisciplinary curriculum encourages an enhanced focus on biomedical engineering research, providing students with the technical and academic skills necessary to graduate with a specialization in biomedical engineering and pursue a career in this field.
