New York Center for
Biomedical Engineering (NYCBE)
The New York Center for Biomedical Engineering (NYCBE) is a research unit established in 1994. The Center has involvement of faculty researchers from Biomedical, Chemical, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as from the Department of Biology in the Division of Sciences. The Center operates in partnership with several prominent New York City biomedical research organizations and hospitals. Up until the formation of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and initiation of a stand-alone baccalaureate program in biomedical engineering, the Center coordinated the offering of undergraduate concentrations in biomedical engineering in all engineering programs in the School and operated interdisciplinary MS, and Ph.D. programs. Many of the biomedical engineering undergraduate and graduate students are involved as researchers with the Center or with its partner institutions. The Institute has substantial external funding from government agencies and private foundations. It also has an administrative staff budget provided by the College.
