Welcome to the Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics

The Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics within the University of Malta was officially set up on the 9 December 2011, with the primary aim being to spearhead research in the foremost areas of Biomedical Engineering and Cybernetics. The term 'Biomedical Cybernetics' refers to the technology-abstracted study of biological and biomedical systems and signals. The competence of the Centre therefore lies in the application of:

  • systems theory
  • analysis, modelling of behaviour and control
  • signal and image acquisition, analysis and processing
  • computational intelligence, data mining and pattern recognition
particularly when all the above are applied to solve medical problems.

The Centre thus seeks to foster an interdisciplinary environment which brings together engineers and clinicians, whereby ideas may be shared, discussed and taken forward in terms of academic research and innovation. One of the end targets is to be able to realise the above potential into tangible reality through the design and development of medical devices that help mankind.

The Centre invites medical professionals with an interest in developing novel ideas through the aid of technology to contact us in order to explore these further.
