Welcome to the Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering

The Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) is a research institute of the Department of Engineering Science, and located on the Old Road Campus of the University of Oxford in Headington.

The IBME offers a world-class venue for biomedical engineering research and postgraduate research training where engineers and clinicians work together on addressing unmet needs in the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of major diseases and conditions. The Institute’s core research missions are to develop novel medical devices, technology and systems capable of delivering substantial healthcare benefit, and to translate new engineering technologies into clinical practice.

Primary activities are based at the Old Road Campus, with some satellite activities in the Botnar Research Centre, and on the Keble Road Triangle site of the Engineering Science Department.

The IBME is directed by Professor Alison Noble OBE FREng, who is also the Technikos Professor of Biomedical Engineering.

The IBME hosts the Centre for Doctoral Training in Healthcare Innovation, a PhD programme funded by the Research Council UK’s digital economy theme. This CDT provides a unique UK  research programme which aims to give PhD engineering students a rounded training in biomedical research and technology translation. This is a 4 year programme, comprising of a first year of training modules followed by 3 years of PhD research. For more details please click on the CDT in Healthcare Innovation logo below.
