Three Presentations at SB3C 2020

David, Elliott, and Kelly all gave great presentations at the virtual Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering and Biotransport Conference. And we enjoyed a virtual get-together with our Utah colleagues.

1 January 2020
CVPM lab awarded R01 from the NIH

The year started off to a great start as we were awarded funding for a project entitled “Biomechanics Indices for Coronary Lesion Rupture Risk and Lesion Prognostication”. More information about the grant can be found here. We look forward to working with collaborators at U. of Utah, Emory Univ. and Univ. of Cambridge. Thanks NIH!
