Biomechanics and Living System Analysis (BioLISYS)

Biomechanics and Living System Analysis laboratory (BiOLISYS)

Biomechanics and Living System Analysis laboratory (BiOLISYS)

The Biomechanics and Living System Analysis (BioLISYS) laboratory is a research group that combines interdisciplinary skills from engineering, biology and medicine to provide solutions to clinical problems associated with cardiovascular, cancer and other diseases.

The aims of the laboratory are:

  1. To study the fluid dynamics of blood using in vivo and in vitro modeling with experimental and computational techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Ultrasound Imaging, CT, Particle Image Velocimetry, Laser Doppler Velocimetry, and Computational Fluid Dynamics
  2. To investigate the mechanisms of evaluation and diagnosis of cardiovascular disease by imaging arterial anatomy and blood flow in diseases such as valvular regurgitation, vascular stenosis, mechanically induced arterial wall damage
  3. To study and assess the functionality of cardiovascular implants, devices and novel biomaterials
  4. To use novel non-invasive imaging techniques to understand the dynamics of cellular mechanisms in cancer development and other inflammatory diseases
  5. To monitor tumor growth in animal cancer models in order to assess tumor burden and to evaluate the response to innovative therapeutic strategies

The end result of our research is:

  • to improve and develop more biofunctional implants and devices,
  • to identify biological markers and mechanisms/pathways in disease development,
  • to develop innovative diagnostic, monitoring, therapeutic approaches and interventions for various diseases,
  • to evaluate the effectiveness of novel cancer therapies.
