The Integrated Biomedical Simulation Laboratory conducts education and research for understanding complex biofluid phenomena and development of advanced medical technologies through experimental work utilizing ultrasound, laser, image processing; numerical work using a supercomputer, and the work combining experimental and numerical methodologies. Main research projects are listed below.
Cellular experiment using microfluidic device
The focus of this laboratory is to develop new concept of implant especially based on flow and to establish new methods for evaluating the implants. For example, when you treat a cerebral aneurysm with endovascular treatment, you should know the effects of medical devices on controls of blood flow. The flow may depend on the geometry, materials and clinical conditions. Since these are so big issues, we collaborate with biomaterial groups, biomechanical groups, and medical groups to gather their top knowledge.
