Labs are located in the Gordon L. Nelson Health Sciences Building unless otherwise noted.

Biomedical Instrumentation Laboratory

Used for both teaching undergraduate and graduate classes and for research, the focus of this laboratory is to expose students to various biomedical-related measurement techniques and processing of the measured data.

Biomedical Computation Laboratory

This laboratory is equipped with an instructor workstation and 16 computer workstations used for teaching undergraduate and graduate classes and for conducting research related to biomedical computing.

Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory/Quantum Biology Lab

This laboratory offers several compression and tension test devices used to test samples under repeated cycles of stress for biomedical applications.

Functional Biomaterials Laboratory

This laboratory is focused on the development of biomimetic materials for functional tissue engineering applications. It is equipped with cell culture equipment, a 3D bioprinter (Regemat), a Q800 dynamic mechanical analyzer (TA Instruments) and a state-of-the-art Raman microscope system  (Renishaw).  It also houses an inverted 4-color fluorescent microscope with differential interference contrast and polarizing light capabilities (Zeiss) and a  Spectromax M2e spectrophotometer (Molecular Devices) with PC interface. 

Cell Culture and Histology Laboratory

This laboratory is equipped with a fluorescence microscope, cold ethylene oxide sterilizer and steam autoclave, humidified CO2 incubator, macro/micro refrigerated centrifuge, an automated cell counter, a Sakura Tissue Tek cryostat and a laminar flow hood/safety cabinet coupled to an aspiration system. This laboratory provides all the amenities for keen cell culture research and histology analysis.

Cardiovascular Research Laboratory

This laboratory focuses on research in developing innovative techniques and devices for the detection and therapy of cardiovascular diseases, such as using ultrasound technology, contrast agents and stem cells to repair vascular damage caused by stent placement.
