Laboratory for Translational, Experimental and Computational Cardiovascular Research
About CV T.E.C. Lab
The Laboratory for Translational, Experimental and Computational Cardiovascular Research (CV T.E.C. lab) is involved in the investigation of cardiovascular disease from the perspective of hemodynamics, vascular biomechanics and cellular mechanisms. The ultimate goal of this research is to create programs that improve the quality of life for patients with cardiovascular disease by developing new medical device, procedural, or pharmacological initiatives.
- Quantify hemodynamic alterations as indices of morbidity after surgical or transcatheter treatments for congenital diseases
- Characterize interactions between altered hemodynamics from stenting or atherosclerosis and the development of neointimal hyperplasia and thrombus
- Immersive virtual reality systems for visualization of computational fluid dynamics results and science, technology, math and engineering education
- Design and implement novel engineering devices and interventions for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, particularly in children
- Develop tools for predictive surgical or interventional treatment planning
The CV T.E.C. lab works closely with clinical collaborators throughout the world, as well as the Medical College of Wisconsin, Children’s Wisconsin, and Discovery World at Pier Wisconsin, where basic research concepts are conveyed in an informal learning environment.
