Research



Our teaching and research focus on the biophysics of the human body and of higher animals. Many of the teaching faculty in the department are scientists in one of the research institutes associated with Western, and bring special topics from their research such as blood flow, orthopedic mechanics, medical imaging and cancer biology.

Our faculty and their graduate students conduct research in partnership with globally recognized faculty supervisors and clinicians at state-of-the-art facilities located at Western University, London Regional Cancer Program, Lawson Health Research Institute, Robarts Research Institute, and the London Health Sciences Centre. After graduation, students find rewarding careers in the healthcare sector, biomedical industry, and academia; others pursue further training in professional schools such as medicine, dentistry, or business.
