Mission in a Minute: 3D Modeling to Help Treat Cardiovascular Disease
Julius M. Guccione, Jr., Ph.D., a biomedical engineer and co-director of the UCSF Cardiac Biomechanics Lab, was recently featured in the “new look” return of the popular video series featuring researchers, clinicians and educators at UCSF. The Mission in a Minute Series showcases the best of UCSF. Professor Guccione’s "Mission in a Minute" is titled 3D Modeling to Help Treat Cardiovascular Disease. His long-term goal is to use realistic physics-based simulation to optimize the design of cardiovascular devices for individual patients.
The “Mission in a Minute” series is a forum for researchers, clinicians, educators and others to communicate directly with their respective audience. The one-minute video series showcases the work they are doing at UCSF, its significance and how it relates to UCSF's overall mission.
