CTU FACULTY OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
The Faculty of Biomedical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague was established in the year 2005. Its scientific, research and developmental activities are aimed at technical, medical and managerial disciplines applied in biomedical engineering, medical informatics, and medicine and population protection. In research and innovation, the faculty strives for quality research on both national and international level and it is systematically heading towards the status of a reputable institution. It seeks to strengthen its standing through cooperation with industry, healthcare and public administration bodies and to create conditions for growing the innovation potential, other creative activities, technology and knowledge transfer. A priority of the faculty is mainly its multidisciplinary staff, instrumentation and material support of long-term national or international grants.
The faculty focuses largely on projects connecting technology, medicine, health and social services, safety and security as well as emergency services. Its graduates are experts with an interdisciplinary education who help save human lives and develop new biomedical technologies. The research and teaching labs of the faculty benefit from state-of-the-art devices, equipment and simulation technology and the workplace ranks among the top ones when it comes to neonatal high-frequency lung ventilation, research into telemedical systems for monitoring and supportive treatment of diabetes, as well as the development of new procedures in emergency and disaster medicine. At present, for example, its activities include developing fast thin-film scintillators for high-resolution 2D imaging.
