OUR MISSION AND VISION

"The Multi-Scale Cardiovascular Bioengineering Laboratory (MSCBL) applies state-of-the-art engineering techniques to solve challenges in cardiovascular research. In this highly multidisciplinary program, the knowledge of the flow characteristics in different cardiovascular structures, and the identification and prediction of the mechanobiological pathways leading to disease will guide the development of early medical interventions for the treatment of congenital and degenerative cardiovascular disorders."
