Cardiovascular Biomechanics Laboratory

Summary:

The research goal of our lab is to understand the role of mechanical stress in the development and remodeling of the cardiovascular system and thus to improve the understanding, treatment, and prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Our lab currently has several funded projects, all aim at understanding the role of mechanical stress in arterial and heart remodeling and its relationship to cardiovascular diseases. Our research topics include the mechanism of artery kinking which often develops in elderly in internal carotid arteries and iliac arteries, the remodeling of arterial wall due to injury and pulse pressure, and the wall stress and remodeling of the left ventricle after an heart attack which will help us to understand the mechanism of heart failure after an heart attack."
