SBME Strategic Plan


Transforming health and healthcare for all

The UBC School of Biomedical Engineering envisions a future where biological and engineering fundamentals are applied seamlessly to the discovery, design, and development of transformative technological solutions to improve patient health and healthcare.

A robust interdisciplinary pipeline enables these solutions across biological scales from molecular structures and cells, to tissue and whole‑body engineering. The biomedical engineering research, education, and translational efforts we are embarking on will yield inventions and innovations which impact society at the individual, population, and system levels—locally, nationally, and internationally.

We are proud to present our strategic plan for achieving these ambitious goals.
