Welcome to the Multiscale Cardiovascular Fluids Laboratory

MCFL 2023 Team 


About Us

In our lab, we focus on understanding blood flow (hemodynamics) under healthy and pathological conditions to understand, detect, diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease. We work closely with clinicians, thereby ensuring that our research is always patient-focused. We use a combination of tools such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of blood flow, virtual surgery and optimization, reduced order modeling of the cardiovascular system, predictive modeling, 3D printing and rapid prototyping. I envision a future where personalized medicine will deliver on its promise and I plan to contribute towards it by incorporating synergistic and interdisciplinary technologies that improve patient outcomes.

1-1-2024 Ruth White Awarded the American Heart Association Pre Doctoral Fellowship

MCFL's Doctoral Candidate, Ruth White, was awarded the American Heart Association (AHA) 2-year Predoctoral Fellowship for her project, "Quantifying Cerebral Aneurysm Hemodynamics using Virtual Angiograms and Deep Learning." The AHA Predoctoral Fellowship is a prestigious and highly-competitive award given to only 150 annually. This award aims to enhances the training of promising students in pre-doctoral or clinical health professional degree training programs and who intend careers as scientists, physician-scientists or other clinician-scientists, or related careers aimed at improving global health and wellbeing. The award provides 2-year stipend, health insurance, and additional fund for project support with no limit on any line item (travel, computer, equipment, etc), totaling $67,388.

10-14-2022 The MCFL is featured with two students and our PI in promotional video for our program show

In 2020, Florida Tech announced the creation and construction of a Health Science Research Center with the focus on expanding the university’s existing Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science Programs. After several long years of waiting and COVID delays, the new building was just recently opened and has became home to the thriving research community of the department. In a marketing video for this new building and its technologies, the MCFL was highlighted for its use of demonstrating technologies with both VR and Deep Learning. See the attached video to learn more.
