ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
The Institute of Biomedical Engineering of Boğaziçi University was established in 1982 as an interdisciplinary graduate school in the field of Biomedical Engineering.
The Institute of Biomedical Engineering is unique in Turkey and offers interdisciplinary instructional programs and research, leading to MS and Ph.D. degrees in various areas of concentration: Biomaterials, Biomechanics, Biomedical Instrumentation, Biophotonics, Clinical Engineering, Medical Imaging, and Neuroengineering.
The field of Biomedical Engineering has emerged as an important profession in developed as well as developing countries and is concerned with the application of engineering technology and science methodology to the analysis of biological, physiological and health care problems.
The objectives of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering are as follows:
1- To provide formal education, training, and research experience in Biomedical Engineering to graduate students of either engineering or physical science background, and also to graduate students with background in life sciences.
2-To conduct research jointly with physicians and scientists in order to develop new health care practices and instrumentation.
Recent Achivements in the Media
Anthropomorphic robotic hand, developed by Prof. Dr. Mehmed Özkan as the principal investigator and in collaboration with other BME faculty members Dr. Burak Güçlü and Dr. Özgür Kocatürk is supported by TÜBİTAK. The team aims at a novel prosthetic device that can fulfill both mechanical and sensory functions. This takes major fundamental and applied research in several BME laboratories (e.g., Robotics, Tactile Research, Clean Room and Biomechanics) of the Institute. See more (in Turkish, in the article published in Haber Türk).
Prof. Dr. Can A. Yücesoy has been studying the effects of Botulinum Toxin type A (Botox) on muscle under several TÜBİTAK grants. In the BME Biomechanics Laboratory using experimental and computational research this team has shown several previously unknown major effects of Botox on muscle function and some important changes in muscle structure. One aim is to develop methodologies to remove effects, which may not agree with the treatment aims. See more on this research (in Turkish, in the article published in Milliyet).
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Burak Güçlü has been developing research and methodology to develop neuro-prostheses in his Tactile Research Laboratory. See more on this research (in Turkish, in the TV show in CNN Türk).
BME is a proud member of LifeSci (Boğaziçi University, Center for Life Sciences and Technologies).
The first session of "open courses" themed "From Life to Science, from Science to Life" was given by our institute faculty Assoc. Prof. Bora Garipcan on 12 April 2017 at Akatlar Kültür Merkezi with cooperation of Beşiktaş Municipality and contributions from Boğaziçi University Center for Lifelong Education (BÜYEM). In this seminar titled "How Do Biomaterials Change Our Lives", Dr. Garipcan talked about biomaterials that are produced to assist in bodily functions while also covering ancient history of biomaterials, types, applications and future projections of the field.
Sleep apnea is a chronic sleep disorder in which breathing stops temporarily during sleep. A medical mouthpiece device designed and developed by Dr. Ozgur Kocaturk and PhD. student Sefa Zulfikar with the initiation and collaboration of Dr. Albert Guvenis. Clinical trials were carried out with Dr. Ceyda Erel Kirisoglu (Kozyatagi Acibadem Hospital). The team aims to develop a novel mouthpiece device that eliminates the drawbacks of the current oral appliances used for sleep apnea treatment. The efficacy of the proposed device was evaluated by the comparison of oropharyngeal volumes through MRI scans and polysomnographic variables.
