Welcome

Prof. Patrick Segers, prof. Pascal Verdonck and prof. Benedict Verhegghe welcome you at the website of bioMMeda, the research group on Biofluid, Tissue and Solid Mechanics for Medical Applications.

The scope of our research ranges from the study of flow and transport processes in blood and biological fluids in the cardiovascular system and artificial organs to biomechanical aspects of the cardiovascular and the skeleto-muscular system and medical devices. Since 2007 the group is housed in the Institute Biomedical Technology (IBiTech) on the top floor of the Heymans Building (blok B) at the campus uz.

A heart build up from bytes - Our research covered on German tv (Nano science magazine)

On World Heart Day, September 29th 2017, Mathias Peirlinck’s research (with Björn Butz) and modeling work on the aortic reconstruction surgery for children suffering from a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome got featured on German television. In an episode of Nano science magazine, the incentive for Mathias’s work and how it helps the clinician and patient is clearly explained (in German). Please find the episode here (from 2:51 on, the video focuses on the work done by Mathias and Björn): https://www.3sat.de/mediathek/?mode=play&obj=69097.
