Research in Biomedical Engineering
Since its inception, biomedical engineering research at USC has been directed to the study of the function and structure of living systems, as well as the application of engineering science to problems in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
USC Coulter Translational Research Partnership Program
The USC Coulter Translational Research Partnership Program supports and funds translational projects that focus on applying developed technologies to solve an unmet or underserved clinical need. Project proposals at all stages of development from concept to implementation are invited for assessment, although the program does not fund discovery research (the creation of new knowledge). The USC Coulter Program supports project teams that are interdisciplinary in nature and include faculty members from the Biomedical Engineering Department in the Viterbi School of Engineering and clinical faculty from the Keck School of Medicine.
