The Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computational Lab at Stanford develops novel computational methods for the study of cardiovascular disease progression, surgical methods, treatment planning and medical devices. We focus on patient-specific modeling for clinical applications in pediatric and congenital heart disease, and adult cardiovascular disease.
The primary objective of the Master of Science program is to prepare students for academic and professional careers in fields involved in the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, injuries and disabilities that result from the interaction of individual and environmental issues/factors in ergonomics and biomechanics.
