About Biomedical Engineering
The J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida is made possible by the vision and generosity of Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt and his family. Since its inception in 2002, the department continues to excel in interdisciplinary research that merges engineering with biology and medicine. The department offers both a graduate program and an undergraduate program (2012 inaugural class), with particular strengths in:
- Neural Engineering
- Imaging and Medical Physics
- Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine
- Biomedical Data Science
The J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering is one of only a few departments in the nation to be co-localized with a top-ranked medical school, veterinary school and dental school.
The department is housed in a new state-of-the-art building (completed in 2010) that is co-located with the medical school and steps from engineering. The $90.5 million, 163,000-square-foot building houses researchers from the colleges of Medicine, Engineering, and Public Health and Health Professions, creating unique opportunities for new collaborations. Biomedical Engineering at UF partners with many local research centers and institutes including the McKnight Brain Institute, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center.
In addition to its close proximity of health sciences, Biomedical Engineering is uniquely positioned to contribute to clinical translation of biomedical technologies because of the outstanding resources for entrepreneurship and commercialization, including Florida’s 40-acre Innovation Square and the Sid Martin Biotechnology Incubator.
