What is biomedical engineering literature?

Biomedical Engineering is the "integration of engineering, biology, and medicine to detect and treat human disease and disability." Due to this multidisciplinary approach, it's essential to investigate all of these perspectives.

As you prepare your thesis or another research project, consider your audiences: biomedical engineers, biomedical professionals, biologists, and engineers. What about your research will excite a biologist? What future impacts will your research have on engineers? By considering your audiences, your thesis and/or research project will have greater impact.

Below are a few selected library databases to get you started.
