Munich Institute of Biomedical Engineering

The Munich Institute of Biomedical Engineering (MIBE) is an Integrative Research Institute (IRI) within the Technical University of Munich (TUM) that fosters interdisciplinary cooperation and synergies between researchers from the broad field of Biomedical Engineering.

At MIBE, researchers specializing in medicine, the natural sciences, and engineering join forces to develop new methods for preventing, diagnosing or treating diseases. The activities cover the entire development process – from the study of basic scientific principles through to their application in new medical devices, medicines and software. Beyond research, MIBE also provides educational opportunities for students and doctoral candidates and fosters entrepreneurship.
