Vascular Engineering


Research overview

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the biggest killer of the developed world and one of the biggest health problems facing the developing world. Here, in Australia, the disease  kills one person every 12  minutes and in the USA the number is much higher. In the Vascular Engineering laboratory we use both computational and experimental techniques to further our understanding of vascular physiology and disease, with an overall aim of helping tackle this global problem.

Our research can be broadly divided into the following themes:

  • Computational biomechanics
  • Experimental biomechanics
  • Multimodality imaging
  • 3D bioprinting and tissue engineering
