Today more than ever, it’s clear that everything depends on our health.
Collaborating across all disciplines, NYU Tandon has been working at the intersection of engineering, healthcare, and life sciences for decades, and our researchers have the expertise to create next-generation solutions at every scale.
Meeting health challenges with innovative solutions
We combine far-reaching research geared towards longstanding clinical problems with Apollo 13 mindsets that enable us to create rapid responses to new medical challenges as they emerge. Being Tandon Made means being ready for the future now, because we don’t believe in waiting until a crisis hits to make good health a priority.
Finding ways to make the world healthier
Our researchers are innovating the future across a range of health challenges — from creating personalized cancer treatments, building advanced wearables to assist the visually impaired, and studying how AI can be used equitably in healthcare.
Thorsten Kirsch’s research defines novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of osteoarthritis and other joint diseases and injuries. His lab studies cartilage homeostasis, maintenance and pathology, as well as how cells and the joint environment interact. To do so, he brings together the engineering expertise of NYU Tandon with the medical expertise of NYU Langone.
JohnRoss Rizzo is an Assistant Professor of biomedical engineering. His research has led to advances in miniaturized sensors and actuators, as well as artificial intelligence (AI) for assistive and rehabilitative technologies. His work is helping patients with conditions such as blindness and stroke, enhancing their ability to interact physically with their environment.
