NYU has recently established state-of-the-art biotechnology programs with a major emphasis on efforts that integrate the life sciences with physical, bioengineering and computational science. The NYU Biomaterials program has significant strength in dental implants, bio-imaging, bio-printing, bone-soft tissue interfaces, bioinspired materials synthesis, biosensors, and biomechanics, among other research topics. The program bridges between nanotechnology, dental, nursing, and bioengineering with emphasis of development of a new biomaterials base for enhanced human health.
