Gurneet Receives the Baxter Young Investigator Award

Congratulations to Gurneet Sangha who has been honored with the Baxter Young Investigator Award that highlights researchers who are focused on developing critical care therapies and medical products that save and sustain patients’ lives.

Dr. Goergen Awarded BMES 2017 Rita Schaffer Young Investigator Award

Congratulations to Dr. Goergen for being awarded the prestigious BMES 2017 Rita Schaffer Young Investigator Award! The award was established in 2000 in honor of the former BMES executive director, highlighting originality and ingenuity in the research of investigators less than seven years removed from receiving their terminal degree. Dr. Goergen will present the Rita Schaffer Young Investigator Lecture at the BMES Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ on October 14, 2017.

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.
