An engineering-medicine-data science collaboration aims to end terminal disease diagnoses for more than 100K Americans.
The Center for Engineering in Medicine
The mission of the UVA Center for Engineering in Medicine has been to create the nation’s best ecosystem for generating, developing, and translating innovative ideas at the engineering-medicine interface to improve prevention, diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of disease.
Since its inception in 2017, the Center for Engineering in Medicine has dramatically expanded the scope of engineering-medicine efforts at the University of Virginia, garnering national attention, creating more than 150 new faculty partnerships, funding over 60 seed grants involving more than140 faculty from over 40 departments and divisions across the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, Nursing and the College of Arts and Sciences.
Faculty teams have submitted over $125M in new external proposals and been awarded over $25M in brand new research funding from NIH and other institutions!
The center leaves a huge interdisciplinary network in its wake as the program sunsets at the end of June, 2023. Please visit the “Our Impact" page to find more details and what some of the faculty participants in this highly innovative program had to say.
