Faculty working in the Healthcare research apply the fundamental knowledge of their respective engineering disciplines to health-related areas; with research projects focused on the technological challenges inherent in developing enhanced imaging systems, assistive devices systems, methodologies to diagnose and treat diseases, physiological modeling, design of separation and bioanalytical systems for clinical applications, and optimization of the delivery and quality of healthcare processes and services. It is easy to envision such projects engaging an interdisciplinary team of students as healthcare encompasses research activities in all of the KGCOE departments as well as other colleges at RIT.
