Biomedical engineering at the University of Calgary puts research into business. It adopts an entrepreneurial approach – from the very business-oriented structure of the participating centres at the organizational level, to the applied questions in experiments and prototypes at the laboratory level. This character is aimed at cultivating an Alberta-based industry, seeded by the most advanced interdisciplinary research teams and top quality new talent trained at the University of Calgary.
