Department of Biomedical Engineering (IMT)

In close collaboration with the medical technology industry and medical clinics we work to meet the needs in healthcare. Since 1972, we have been a national center for research and graduate and undergraduate education in medical technology. 

We strive towards being a catalyst for sustainability in future medical systems and innovations – an arena for leading international researchers and teachers where new knowledge is created and dispersed

Our research and education centers around biomedical optics, ultrasound and bio-acoustics, modeling and simulation of physiological processes, neuro-technology, knowledge-based decision support systems as well as signal and image processing methods.

Workshop on Modelling in Biology and Medicine 2022

We are pleased to invite you to our third Workshop on Modelling in Biology and Medicine (MBM 2022). We aim to gather all young researchers in Sweden working on modelling of biological systems. Our ambition is to give all participating PhD students and PostDocs the opportunity to present their work through an oral presentation or a poster. Further, we wish to provide an insight on how modelling in biology and medicine is practiced in academia and industry. The workshop will be in English.

Start 23 May 2022, 8.00 am
End 24 May 2022, 4.00 pm
Location Linköping
Contacts Kajsa Tunedal

Research at IMT Show/Hide content

Doctoral studies Show/Hide content

Postgraduate studies at the Department of Biomedical Engineering are characterized by their multidisciplinary profile, where research and education takes place at the meeting place of medicine and technology. The aim of postgraduate education is to provide broader and deeper knowledge within the field of medical technology and specific knowledge in the dissertation field, as well as providing research experiences and skills in research methodology.

Undergraduate education Show/Hide content

We educate bachelor level engineers and master level engineers. This is done both through the degree program in biomedical engineering as well as in collaboration with other engineering programs. The proximity to the hospital allows for field trips, demonstrations and laboratory work in clinics. Experts from the hospital are often hired as lecturers in their areas of expertise.

Find your way to IMT Show/Hide content

IMT has its premises at Campus US. Our administration as well as the majority of our researchers are located in building 462. The easiest ways to find us are via the Campus US Main entrance (entrance 65), entrance 71 (IMT's parking), entrance 54 (Hugo Theorells torg) or entrance 69 (cinical pathology).

Entrance 65
Walk past Delimarche on the left and follow signs for IMT down the stairs. When you get to the lower floor follow the corridor straight ahead until it divides. You will then find stairwells and lifts to IMT directly on your left.

Entrance 71
Enter the corridor through the doors to the left immediately after the entrance. When the corridor divides you find stairwells and lifts to IMT on your right.

Entrance 54
Directly on your right take the stairs down one floor, go straight ahead in the corridor named "Cellgången". Soon you will see lifts to IMT on your left.

Entrance 69
Go up the ramp and then take the spiral staircase up one floor to floor 8. From here take left in the corridor marked "kulvert till övriga sjukhuset". Go straight ahead until you see lifts to IMT on your right.

Our neuroengineering researchers can be found in house 006, the easiest way to get to them is via entrance 54 at Hugo Theorells torg.
Go straight ahead and then left through the IT department's premises. Follow signs for "IMT, Neuroteknik"
