ABOUT US

The Institute of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering (IBEB) is a research unit of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. IBEB was founded in 1992, and its activities are focused on research and postgraduate teaching. Research carried out at IBEB covers Biophyiscs and Biomedical Engineering approaches to understand some human health disorders. IBEB’s scientific activity is organized into 4 transversal research lines, distributed by its 14 Ph.D. members.

 

IBEB contributes for the MSc and PhD programs in Biomedical Engineering and Biophysics of the Faculty of Ciências of Universidade de Lisboa and participates on other post-graduate courses within Ciências or in collaboration with other schools of ULisboa. About 60 MSc theses and 30 PhD theses have been produced so far.

MISSION

IBEB’s mission is to improve scientific knowledge and training on the physical and physiological aspects underlying Oncology and Neurosciences in humans and apply them to the benefit of society.


OBJECTIVES

The main objectives of IBEB aim to provide increased insights into the following general scientific questions:

 

Q1. How can we use imaging to detect cancer at its early stages and predict its evolution more reliably?

 

Q2. How can we use innovative ways to treat cancer and reduce treatment side effects?

 

Q3. How can we stimulate the brain non-invasively and use this interaction for therapeutic purposes?

 

Q4. How are functional connections between the different parts of the brain structured in healthy and pathological conditions?

IBEB AIMS DOING THIS THROUGH

 

O1. The support of creative and ambitious research.

 

O2. Emphasizing multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches.

 

O3. Contributing to the use of physical and engineering principles in Diagnostics and Therapy.

 

O4. Supporting Biomedical Engineering training of undergraduate, Ph.D. and postdoctoral researchers.

 

O5. Exploring clinical, translational and multi-disciplinary research opportunities.

 

O6. Developing strategic partnerships that support and complement IBEB’s scientific strengths.

 

O7. Developing close interactions with industry and facilitate innovation and value creation.

 

O8. Engaging effectively with the society.

 

O9. Increasing young people’s enjoyment and aspirations in Biomedical Engineering.
