About this research area

With a strong translational emphasis, research focuses on technological advances toward and supporting product design and development. Primary topics include on-chip systems that mimic vascular physiology to assess blood disorders, interventional tools for treatment of stroke and aneurysms, and devices to support heart healing after infarction. Translational work is supported by ISO-13485, FDA 21 CFR 820 compatible quality systems, equipment controls and an ISO-8 compatible fabrication facility. Other research includes understanding and controlling device-body interactions, improving benchtop and computational analysis tools and novel materials and devices. Some partners include Texas Children’s Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine, Houston Methodist Research Institute and Texas Heart Institute.
