Abstract:

The School of Medicine, the School of Hygiene and Public Health, and The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory have developed a collaborative program of biomedical research and development over the past several years. An important objective of the program is to apply the expertise in engineering and physical sciences, and systems analysis acquired in defense and space research and development by APL to problems of medical research and health care delivery. At the present time this program has grown to include collaboration with nearly all of the clinical departments and with several of the basic science departments of the medical divisions. Currently active programs exist in ophthalmology, neuro-sensory research and instrumentation development, cardiovascular systems, radiology, prosthetic systems, computer support, and clinical engineering.
