RE/SA-Lab Manager

The overarching goal of the James T. Willerson Center for Cardiovascular Modeling and Simulation (WCCMS) is developing computational biomechanical models for understanding heart valve and heart disease progression for developing clinical interventions, including prosthetics devices. We develop or utilize a range of unique in-vivo and in-vitro data for elucidating mechanisms that underlie the observed pathologies. Our modeling focus is the detailed incorporation of this data to provide a high level of physical and physiological realism and validation, working at the continuum-cellular, fibrous tissue, and whole organ levels.
In support of this program, the Lab Manager’s primary purpose is to design, conduct and direct experimental studies which work in conjunction with computational work in the Willerson Center for Cardiovascular Modeling and Simulation under direction of Professor Sacks in the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences and the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
