Engineering in Medicine
UCLA Samueli engineers are looking to build therapeutic devices that will connect directly with our brains. It’s just one example of our breakthrough engineering technologies in medicine. We are searching for new ways to develop new drugs much more rapidly. We are using AI to build cancer treatments tailored to the individual. We’re crunching big data to better understand how genetics impact disease and building nanoscale tools to effect better cures.
Endeavors of this magnitude require a great deal of collaboration, and our research partners at the world-renowned David Geffen School of Medicine are just a few steps away. And while our work is largely conducted locally, our vision is global – supporting the health needs of underserved communities and developing countries around the world.
Explore today’s latest technologies from UCLA Samueli that will improve healthcare and save lives tomorrow.
