Transhumanism - human upgrades such as artificial limbs or nanobots

    Transhumanism -- human upgrades such as artificial limbs or nanobots

    Hi,

    I'm a physics student (actually doing the third year of my bachelor degree ) in Canada and am wondering what field I should choose for my master and/or phd if I want to work in transhumanism.

    By transhumanism, I mean working on human upgrades such as artificial limbs or nanobots.

    I first thought of going in medical physics as the name gave me the wrong idea that it was the way to go if I wanted to work on both general medical-related issues and physics but then realized it was mostly related to cancer therapy and imaging. I am now considering biophysics, but am not sure if it is exactly what I want (being really interested in applications on the human body specifically, not some random cells to develop a new kind of shampoo). What do you think?
