Overview of Biomedical Research Group
Research Activity

A more basic understanding of the physiology of the human body down to the molecular and cellular level has broadened the scope of what was originally known as Medical Electronics to a Biomedical Engineering field of expertise supported by a wide range of expertise in engineering, medicine and biology.

Biomedical Engineering can be defined as a multidisciplinary field as a synergy of various basic engineering concepts (engineering) in the world of medicine & biology for the improvement of human health. This synergy has resulted in various types of new tools that are currently widely used in improving the quality and handling of health (health-care). Advances in biology have contributed a lot to this field, resulting in the emergence of various new devices (medical instruments) capable of displaying various parameters of the human body down to the cellular level and nano-order molecules. This progress has triggered the need for human resources who have a strong foundation, both in terms of biology and medical science as well as basic engineering for their application at the apparatus level.

At ITB, research in the field of medical electronics has been initiated in the Department of Electrical Engineering since the early 1970s. This activity then continued as the PAU Microelectronics research program where research was directed at two fields of application, namely industrial electronics and medical electronics. In the late 1990s, the Master program in Biomedical Engineering was introduced as part of the electronics pathway. This program (option) then continues with various shifts following the rules and curriculum structure at ITB to its current form, where the handling is managed by the biomedical engineering expertise group (KK-BME) as part of STEI-ITB. The growing need for various new devices in the field of health services is expected to be a good momentum to advance this field and strengthen synergies from various related disciplines.

In Proceedings of the IEEE Celebrates a Century: Special editorial features and centennial events are under way, one of the areas that will develop in the future is integration and synergy of nano-bio-info-cogno (NBIC) technologies. The four fields (nano-bio-info-cogno), some of which have been partially worked on in several families in the STEI environment.
