There is a need for new devices and therapies to treat cardiovascular disease. Our research is leading to new solutions in practice - based on the latest understanding of the fundamental processes involved. Behaviour in tissue biomechanics and biofluid dynamics place important demands on the design of compatible solutions. New materials, manufacturing processes, instrumentation and techniques for analysis provide the ingredients for a fresh investigation of the opportunities to produce effective devices at a reasonable cost. These solutions stand to transform the lives of patients.
Current projects presented here are:
