CVIRL Presents in Minneapolis at BMES 2016

Members from the CVIRL lab presented their work at this year's Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. Below are the selected poster and oral presentations from the meeting:

Arvin Wins 2016 Graduate Student Mentor of the Summer!

As part of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program, undergraduate Kelsey Bullens nominated her mentor Arvin Soepriatna for the Graduate Student Mentor of the Summer Award, which he won! Congratulations to Arvin for his hard work, and thank you to Kelsey for the kind nomination!

Dr. Goergen and Evan Phillips Present CVIRL Work at ISACB 2016

The International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology (ISACB) held its 15th Annual Conference in Banff, Alberta, Canada this year. Both Dr. Goergen and Evan Phillips presented current CVIRL Lab work at the conference, showcasing our application of cardiovascular imaging to understanding disease progression.

Amelia's Senior Design Team wins 2016 DEBUT Competition with "TB or Not TB"

The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and VentureWell have come together to support and expand the Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams (DEBUT) challenge, which recognizes undergraduate excellence in biomedical design and innovation. Amelia's Senior Design Team has won the $20,000 1st Place Prize with their project: "TB or Not TB: A First of its Kind Smart Pill to Fill the Pediatric Gap".

The Purdue CardioVascular Imaging Research Laboratory

The mission of the Purdue University Cardiovascular Imaging Research Laboratory (CVIRL) is to advance imaging techniques to study disease progression and improve detection and treatment across a broad spectrum of medical conditions, ultimately enhancing the quality of human life. Under the guidance of Dr. Craig Goergen, we have previously been focused on developing imaging techniques to study both cardiac and vascular disease, but current efforts take a more expansive approach, including research projects from cancer to diabetes. Non-invasive imaging aids our group in the development of technologies that will positively impact the clinical care of patients.

As part of the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University, we are working with collaborators in the College of Engineering, the College of Health and Human Sciences, the College of Veterinary Medicine, the Indiana University School of Medicine, and others to conduct translational research. Our overall aim is to advance the field of imaging to help diagnose, treat, or prevent disease, ultimately providing patients with longer and more fulfilling lives.
