Munich Institute of Biomedical Engineering

The Munich Institute of Biomedical Engineering (MIBE) is an interdisciplinary research institute within the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany.


At the MIBE, researchers specializing in medicine, the natural sciences, and engineering join forces to develop new methods for diagnosing or treating diseases and improved technologies that compensate for physical disabilities. The activities cover the whole development process – beginning with the study of basic scientific principles and ending with their application in new medical devices, medicines, and software programs.

On both the Master's and the doctoral level, the MIBE provides a variety of options for an interdisciplinary education in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, medical physics, medical informatics and related fields. More information is available on the page of the master's program “Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics“ as well as on the overview pages for the master's programs and doctoral studies.


The MIBE actively supports researchers who want to start a business and turn their findings into innovative products and services. Read more

    The virus trap

    15 July 2021 | To date, there are no effective antidotes against most virus infections. An interdisciplinary research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now developed a new approach: they engulf and neutralize viruses with nano-capsules tailored from genetic material using the DNA origami method.
