About the Project
Project 1 – Understanding the Mechanobiology Origins of Congenital Heart Diseases
Past investigations have pointed to abnormal cardiac deformational mechanics and flow forces to play a role in causing congenitally malformed hearts. We strive to understand the mechanisms by which this happens in a multidisciplinary team, via studies of biomechanics and biological responses to mechanical stimuli in small animal embryos and disease models. We will use advanced and novel imaging, image processing, and biomechanics simulation tools to understand embryonic heart biomechanics, and gene sequencing, histology and biological perturbation approaches to understand the associated mechanobiology.
