Mission and Approach

Research Intro

The mission of the Chesler Lab is to improve cardiovascular health through the integration of mechanical engineering, vascular biology and imaging tools, to advance knowledge in these fields, and to educate the next generation of leaders in cardiovascular engineering and science. Ventricular failure is the most common cause of death in people with cardiovascular disease. The Chesler Lab strives to better understand and prevent ventricular failure by focusing on three aspects of physiology and pathophysiology: ventricular function, blood flow dynamics, and changes in the large and small arteries alter blood flow dynamics and thus ventricular function.
