Cardiovascular Mechanics and Materials Lab

Description: The cardiovascular (CV) system, while multi-faceted and complex, can be functionally understood through biomechanical analyses. In our lab, we focus on characterizing, modeling, and predicting physiological and pathophysiological CV biomechanics, and in doing so seek to advance the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of a variety of disease states. Special emphasis is placed on biomaterial-based interventions, where therapeutic gains are predicated on favorable alteration of CV mechanics. Ongoing research activity integrates theoretical/computational modeling, bench-top experiments, and animal studies.
