Expanded research in this area is a top priority of the college. There are several groups on which we will base our growth: nanomedicine for diagnosis and treatment, as well as for drug development; identification of critical paths in selected proteomic processes (e.g., renal, cardiovascular), using a system biology approach; and device development (e.g., telemedicine for breast examinations, non-invasive diagnosis of cardio- and other critical functions, ultrasound and microwave imaging and therapy, tissue engineering, neuroprosthetics, and new sensor development).
