Engineers are used to understanding complex systems, and few systems are more complex than the human body.

Tandon researchers work at the intersection of engineering, healthcare, and the life sciences to discover powerful new treatments and medical devices, develop methods to deliver care to underserved communities, create assistive technology to increase accessibility and livability for all, and find ways to make the world’s population a healthier one.


From envisioning the wireless operating room of the future, to creating nano-scale “labs-on-a-chip” and biosensors, to engineering biomaterials that can efficiently and accurately deliver drug therapy to targeted cells — NYU Tandon is doing research that saves lives and opening up new frontiers in biomedicine.
