The New York Center for Biomedical Engineering (NYCBE) is a consortium of New York City medical research institutions established in 1994 to serve as a focal center for collaborative biomedical engineering research in the New York metropolitan area. The NYCBE promotes interactions between the Department of Biomedical Engineering at City College and partner clinical institutions in the consortium, enabling interactive research collaborations and educational activities. These activities include translational technology development and the placement of CCNY BME students in research laboratories at consortium partner institutions.
A unique feature of this effort is that it involves a synergistic cooperation between the nation's largest urban public university and a consortium of highly endowed, world-class private medical institutions. The current consortium in the NYCBE consists of the CCNY School of Engineering, the CUNY Graduate and Medical Schools, and a citywide network of collaborators at most of the premier health care institutions in New York City.
