Simulating fluid flow to study disease
New MechE faculty member Noelia Grande Gutiérrez uses computational modeling to study the fluid mechanics of blood flow to design personalized therapies for thrombosis, earlier diagnosis of coronary artery disease, and precise, targeted drug delivery for cancer.
Using deep learning to research material transport in the brain
Understanding the causes of degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, Huntington's, and Parkinson's will require the meticulous investigation into the complex, branch-like neurite networks of the brain. Machine learning can be an efficient, highly accurate part of this process.
