Marsden Lab

The Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computational Lab at Stanford  develops novel computational methods for the study of cardiovascular disease progression, surgical methods, treatment planning and medical devices.  We focus on patient-specific modeling for clinical applications in pediatric and congenital heart disease, and adult cardiovascular disease.  We are located in the Clark Center, the home of Bio-X.   Our lab bridges engineering and medicine through the departments of Pediatrics, Bioengineering, and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering.

 Our lab supports the SimVascular open source project at:


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 cardiovacsular modeling tools to the clinical setting.
