Abstract :

The American Congress allocated an estimated $571 million in the 1999 budget of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to bioengineering-related research in recognition of its importance in developing medical diagnostic equipment. Advances in heart-lung transplants, hip joint replacements and the use of prostheses were all made possible by bioengineering. As one of the advocates of bioengineering, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers has proposed the creation of a National Center for Bioengineering at the NIH to protect and promote bioengineering research programs.
