Welcome to the Bioengineering Research Portal!

The Bioengineering research portal is designed to meet the needs of faculty and graduate researchers in bioengineering, especially neural engineering and medical imaging.  It combines the features of blogs, resource databases, search engines, etc. to help users find the information they need.  The bioengineering resources included in the portal are drawn from the GMU Libraries (journals, books, databases) as well as research resources located on the Internet (research centers, conferences, etc.).  Specific pages include:

Resources — contains journals, e-books, literature databases, websites, etc.  The resources are classified by subject and the entire classification can be viewed by selecting the “Show Entire Classification” link on the page.

Journals — provides direct links to the most current issue of selected journals that are related to bioengineering.

Links – are a collection of links to the Mason Neural Engineering and the Biomedical Imaging labs, and other Mason resources, as well as links to science networking sites, professional societies, etc.
