Faculty of Bioengineering
The focus of our research is on cross-cutting advances at the interface between in vivo and in silico neural information processing.
The Christman lab is interested in multi-scale, interdisciplinary approaches for regenerative medicine and biomaterials, with a main focus on the treatment of myocardial infarction and heart failure.
Todd P. Coleman received the B.S. degrees in electrical engineering (summa cum laude), as well as computer engineering (summa cum laude) from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2000, along with the M.S. and Ph... more
The Contijoch lab aims to improve evaluation of the heart and pulmonary vasculature by developing novel imaging techniques. We develop novel image acquisition, reconstruction, and analysis strategies for CT, MRI, and... more
The Engler lab is an interdisciplinary research group using multiple stem cells (embryonic, adult, and induced pluripotent) and model systems (mice, rats, flies, monkeys) to understand disease processes,... more
Our research focus is on the mechanics and electrical dynamics of the normal and diseased heart from molecular to organ scales.
In spite of these successes, there remained unmet opportunities at UCSD. In 2005... more
In the Cardiovascular Imaging Lab (CViL) we develop new scanning protocols, hardware, and image analysis methods to diagnose and treat heart disease. Using both MRI and CT, we have been successful in creating... more
The Metallo Lab applies systems biology approaches to study metabolic pathways in mammalian cells, with a focus on understanding metabolic regulation in cancer cells and stem cells. Metabolism encompasses the... more
The goal of the Cartilage Tissue Engineering Laboratory is to use and advance bioengineering in order to better prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases and injuries of cartilage.
Our lab's goal is to understand cell signaling and information processing in biological cellular neural networks in the brain and retina.
Dr. Valdez-Jasso’s research group focuses on soft-tissue biomechanics and multi-scale mathematical modeling of organ and tissue function, particularly as they pertain to understanding the ventriculo-vascular... more
Dr. Wang’s research includes the development of genetically-encoded molecule biosensors based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and the application of these biosensors for the visualization and... more
Sheng obtained a Ph.D. in Biostatistics at Harvard University. He worked at Stanford University as a visiting scholar. He worked at University of Illinois as an assistant professor, an associate professor and Bliss... more
