Our Focus. The Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation Lab develops fundamental computational methods for the study of cardiovascular disease progression, surgical methods, treatment planning and medical devices. We focus on patient-specific modeling in pediatric and congenital heart disease, as well as adult cardiovascular disease. Our lab bridges engineering and medicine through the departments of Pediatrics, Bioengineering, and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. We develop the SimVascular open source project.
Our team. Led by Professor Alison Marsden, our lab includes graduate students, postdocs, and staff scientists at Stanford. We collaborate closely with cardiologists, radiologists, surgeons, computational scientists and bioengineers at Stanford and around the world to translate computational cardiovascular modeling tools to the clinical setting.
