Natalia Trayanova, ICM Core Faculty, Featured in BME’s ‘Pioneers’ Video Series
Computer models are used in many aspects of daily life, but rarely in medicine. Natalia Trayanova, Murray B. Sachs Professor of biomedical engineering and ICM core faculty, would like to change that. She was recently featured in the Department of Biomedical Engineering’s Pioneers video series for her innovative research in computational cardiology.
Using predictive modeling and simulation, Trayanova’s lab builds personalized virtual hearts that are being used by clinicians to diagnose and treat patients with cardiovascular disorders. In the video, “Pioneering Cardiovascular Engineering,” Trayanova explains the evolution of her lab’s research into a tool that guides surgical procedures and she shares her vision for the future of computational medicine in the field of cardiology.
