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.
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.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is co-ordinated within the Office of Indigenous Relations.
