Amelia Successfully Defends Her Master's Thesis!

Congratulations to Amelia Adelsperger for successfully defending her Master's Thesis, titled "Development and growth trends in angiotensin II-induced murine abdominal aortic aneurysms"! Amelia will soon be leaving the lab and will be dearly missed by everyone she has worked with... but she's now moving onto bigger and better things! Best of luck to all your future endeavors Amelia!

Collaboration with Dr. Neu Published in ACS Biomaterials

Congratulations to Jim Cimino, Frederick Damen, Evan Phillips, and Dr. Goergen for publishing their collaborative effort with Dr. Neu's lab "In Vivo Multiscale and Spatially-Dependent Biomechanics Reveals Differential Strain Transfer Hierarchy in Skeletal Muscle" in the ACS Biomaterials Journal!

Arvin and Freddy Present at IUPUI Renal Imaging Symposium

The IUPUI Imaging Symposium is an annual meeting for regional university labs to present their research, as well as display what IUPUI has to offer. This year's focus was on renal imaging and Arvin and Freddy went down to Indianapolis to present some of CVIRL's ultrasound based research.

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.
