This division supports the development of biomedical technologies (without preference for any disease or application) that directly interface with human physiology and control biological function to establish next-generation interventions for human health. This division also supports research to advance the design and deployment of future technology-driven interventions.

Science Highlights ·NIBIB-funded researchers are developing an imaging method that would allow surgeons to better identify cancerous cells in breast tumor margins during surgery. This technique could lead to a reduction in follow-up breast cancer surgeries and reduce rates of breast cancer recurrence.

NIBIB in the News ·As race season approaches, many runners have the same goal: go faster. But researchers now show that speeding up might require defying our natural biology. By combining data from runners monitored in a lab along with 37,000 runs recorded on wearable fitness trackers, scientists have found that humans' natural tendency is to run at a speed that conserves caloric loss -- something that racers seeking to shave time off their miles will have to overcome.
