The Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering at Mayo Clinic has a long and rich history of scientists, engineers and physicians working together to translate basic discoveries in medicine and engineering into enhanced patient care.

The department studies how the body works normally, investigates processes that contribute to a variety of diseases and conditions, and develops approaches to cure them. To accomplish these goals, faculty members develop and apply innovative tools and techniques not only for research but also for clinical implementation.

Close collaborations between department staff members and clinical investigators in a rich and nurturing medical environment position the department as an ideal translational partner, capable of infusing novel technologies and harnessing new solutions to meet current and future biomedical and health care challenges.

The Mayo Clinic Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering is one of the most highly recognized physiology or biomedical engineering departments in the U.S., consistently ranking among the best in the country in terms of extramural funding, publications and innovation.
