Problems that we solve

The Bioengineering Network is a large team of interdisciplinary researchers working towards better diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. The main diseases we fight are cardiovascular disease and cancer. We aim to improve the well-being of people all around the world.  

We primarily solve problems in the areas of:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Brain
  • Medical image analysis
  • Physiological modelling
  • Computer vision and artificial intelligence
  • Biosensing

The Bioengineering Network addresses a wide range of problems, primarily in the areas of human health. The Network has a diverse range of skills and expertise and, as a whole, is extremely complementary and synergistic.

Research Groups and Areas

We consist of several major research groups and are part of a large network of collaborators spanning all faculties at UWA; right across all universities, hospitals and research institutes in Perth and Western Australia; nationally and internationally:
