Welcome to the DU Cardiovascular Biomechanics Lab


 

The DU Cardiovascular Biomechanics Laboratory, located in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Denver, is focused on applied and translational research in cardiovascular diseases. We use computational and experimental approaches to obtain greater insight into the complex pathways of cardiovascular diseases, and thereby to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic devices. The scope of our research projects encompasses structural heart disease and valvular heart disease, including transcatheter heart valve replacement and development of patient-specific therapeutic strategies.
