Engineering Cardiovascular Systems
With cardiovascular disease being the number one cause of death across the world, enormous progress has been made in recent years to address the development of engineered cardiovascular systems. Despite these advances there are still a number of clinical challenges that have so far remained unexplored.
Professor Adrian Neild from the Faculty of Engineering at Monash University and Dr Jerome Charmet from the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Medicine at the University of Warwick will come together to explore the engineering of cardiovascular systems to address issues within the following cardiovascular systems:
- Cardiovascular stents,
- Ex-vivo cardiovascular models, and
Through a combination of 3D printing and microfluidic, Professor Neild, Dr Charmet and a team of experts will address key cardiovascular system issues throughout the project and generate measurable outputs and opportunities that have the potential to involve commercial partners.
