The general goal of our laboratory is to research design and build in vitro systems that simulate cardiovascular flows, hemodynamic shear forces, and blood-tissue interaction.
In addition, the laboratory conducts a wide program of numerical bio-simulations.
- In Vitro Biological Flows.
- Endothelial Cell and Platelets activation.
- Digital Particle Image Velocimetry (DPIV).
- Vulnerable Plaque.
- Blood-Tissue Interaction.
The Cardiovascular System and Bioengineering Laboratory is located in room 401 of the Multidisciplinary Research Building in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. We have in-house facilities for experimental and numerical studies of blood flow in cardiovascular system, including implanted devices. Experimental studies based mainly on Digital Particle Image Velocimetry (DPIV) method.
