A PhD Program with a Purpose
Research That Fuels the Impact Cycle
Cutting-edge research that aims to serve society through translation of new discoveries and technologies.
Accelerate Your Career
High impact trainings and mentorship on science communication and entrepreneurship that launch, and accelerate, your professional development.
Research Tools to Make Your Future
World-class facilities for fabrication, prototyping and analysis to help you transform your research ideas into real-world solutions and products.
Joint PhD Program Focused on Translation
An innovative joint PhD training program leverages the combined strengths at the University of Oregon Knight Campus and Oregon State University.
Mentorship and student access are at the heart of the Knight Campus mission. Bioengineering Assistant Professor Marian Hettiaratchi is among those recognized at the UO for her teaching efforts and student mentorship.
Bioengineering Associate Professor Paul Dalton and his international colleagues recently took a big step in both manufacturing precision and quality control in 3D-printing processes. The step helped advance melt electrowriting (a high-resolution technique) and better predict fiber size.
Get a peek into Professor Jonathan Reeder's wearable sensors class and see how students at the Knight Campus repurpose newfound engineering skills into their own research.
The first cohort of bioengineering doctoral students launched their Knight Campus graduate training during IMPACT Week. Students sharpened their communications skills, partnering with UO’s Center for Science Communication Research, and spent a day on innovation training, with a focus on translating their science to the market. The group also had a chance to tour the new facilities, network with faculty, and strengthen their cohort connections.
2021 Oregon Bioengineering Symposium
Join the virtual conversation on November 11-12, hosted by Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). The event is co-organized by Oregon Health & Science University, University of Oregon, and Oregon State University. This year’s meeting will focus on Regenerative Medicine, Rehabilitation, and Artificial Intelligence.
Registration is free. Poster submissions are due by October 15, 2021.
