Dan Dragomir-Daescu, Ph.D., leads and collaborates on research projects in several areas of biomedical engineering. Past and current research projects use various experimental and computational models of soft and hard tissues.
Dr. Dragomir-Daescu's research projects include:
The overarching goal of Dr. Dragomir-Daescu's research projects is to improve patient outcomes through better understanding of disease mechanisms, earlier detection of disease and development of improved medical devices. For example, the current clinical standard markers to detect LVAD pump thrombosis result from significant deviation from optimal pump function. This means that the patient's LVAD to assist in pumping blood through the heart is already impaired by the time the problem is detected. Earlier detection of LVAD pump thrombosis can lead to better patient outcomes because the beginning of pump thrombosis can be treated and resolved before pump function suffers significantly.
