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.
