Welcome to the Byrne Lab!

Established in August 2021, the Byrne Lab is driven by our long-term interest: developing transformative technologies to improve patient care. Bridging the disciplines of biomedical engineering and oncology, our lab strives toward innovation. The Byrne Lab actively collaborates with other labs and investigators both at the University of Iowa and outside the campus.

We strive to be the most innovative biomedical engineering group internationally. Achieving that goal requires a daily commitment to learn, improve, and discover.
