Our research

Positioned at the cross-roads of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and medicine, biotechnology and bioengineering hold dramatic promise for improving quality of life and human health. With aging demographics and escalating healthcare costs, bioengineering and biotechnology will be critical in our future.

Researcher Applications, Technologies, and Disciplines

CBB researchers are grouped based on the relevant application areas, technology areas relevant to their application areas, and disciplines of their research.

A strength of CBB's structure as a research centre is its diversity. CBB’s research groups are multidisciplinary, and members hold research interests in areas as diverse as medical and wearable devices, rehabilitation, imaging, cancer, aging, and more. The Centre’s members offer a wide range of expertise, as members stem from every faculty at Waterloo, with its greatest numbers in Engineering and Science.
