The research symposium, held by UMNBEI in cooperation with the UM Biomedical Engineering Department, was a great success. 






Welcome to UMNBEI

The NASA Bioscience and Engineering Institute (NBEI), located at the University of Michigan, is responsible for conducting research in the fields of

  • Tissue Bioscience and Engineering

  • Molecular Biophysics and Engineering

  • Transport Phenomena in Biology and Devices

  • BioMEMS and Biomaterials


Multiple projects explore these four themes. The proposed studies are multidisciplinary efforts to investigate basic biology and technology related to the bioscience and engineering interface. They range in scale from molecular to cellular to whole animal, each with its own relevance to NASA’s goals.
