Dr. Craig Goergen
Areas of Research: Cardiovascular Imaging and Mechanics
Project: Ultrasound Imaging
Development and quantification of images from an advanced ultrasound system specifically designed for small animals. Students will perform simple surgeries, collect ultrasound images, and quantify changes in the cardiovascular system using laboratory animals.
Project: Stem Cell Therapy
Quantify the effect of mesenchymal stem cells on abdominal aortic aneurysms. Students will culture and label cells, perform injections, and quantify imaging results. A comparison to human aneurysms will help translate these results to impact clinical care.
