Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Craig J. Goergen obtained his B.S. in biomedical engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in bioengineering from Stanford University.
His postdoctoral research fellowship at Harvard Medical School focused on optical imaging of cardiac disease. He joined the faculty at Purdue in December of 2012, and is the principal investigator for the Purdue Cardiovascular Imaging Research Laboratory (CVIRL). His current research interests focus on developing advanced imaging techniques to study cardiovascular disease. Through the use of biomedical optics, magnetic resonance, and ultrasound, his group is studying a variety of diseases (including abdominal aortic aneurysms, congenital heart disease, atherosclerosis, and left ventricular hypertrophy). Ultimately, Goergen hopes to help develop therapeutics, devices, and imaging techniques to directly improve patients' lives.
