CBE Seminar: Netanel Korin
Title: "The Fluid Mechanics of Vascular Diseases and Targeted Therapeutics"
The cardiovascular (CV) system is a highly dynamic system where the interplay between vascular physiology, hemodynamics, and transport phenomena plays a dominant role in health and disease. Abnormal features of local blood flow (e.g., low/high shear stress, eddies, etc) have been associated with a variety of vascular diseases including atherosclerosis, brain and aortic aneurysms, stroke, heart valve disease and arterial thrombosis. Unraveling the biophysical features of abnormal flow and their role in vascular diseases may be valuable for understanding the etiology of these pathologies and can be leveraged to develop innovative therapeutic and diagnostic approaches. In this talk I will describe our recent work on pathological hemodynamic and targeted drug delivery to high-risk brain aneurysms and on human reconstructed blood vessel in vitro models recapitulating vascular diseases including thrombosis.
