Welcome to the BioManufacturing and Vascular Device Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh

 Current research interests include artificial biomaterials, composites, endovascular devices, diagnostic vascular implants, and micro-bio-systems, as well as fundamental device-associated biocompatibility and development of experimental techniques. Specifically, the work in the area of:

 

  • Designing and Manufacturing Medical Devices for Treating Vascular Diseases
  • Development of Artificial Biomaterials and Bio-hybrid Composites
  • Micro Fabrication and Nanoscale Characterization
  • Studies on Hemocompatible Surface Modification of Biomaterials
  • In-vitro tests: Device functionality, Hemocompatibility, Inflammatory response
  • Investigation on Hemodynamics using MEMS transducer arrays
  • In-vivo Animal Testing and Post-mortem Examination

 

OPPORTUNITIES

The BioManufacturing and Vascular Device Laboratory currently invites applications for graduate student researchers (Ph.D.) interested in developing novel manufacturing processes and realizing advanced biomedical devices. Students must possess a B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or relevant field. Interested parties should send an email including a cover letter describing research interests, a C.V., and names and contact information for at least two references. Indication of interests should be sent to yjchun@pitt.edu.
