    Alfred E. Mann Department of Biomedical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Cheri X. Deng, Professor of Biomedical Engineering - University of Michigan

    Talk Title: Expanding the boundaries of biomedical ultrasound: recent results in biomaterials and mechanobiology applications

    Abstract: Ultrasound has a long history in medicine, prized for its non-invasive capability and unparalleled safety profile. In recent years, biomedical ultrasound has entered a renaissance, with revived interest and rapid technological advances fueled by transducer and imaging innovations alongside interdisciplinary efforts harnessing new discoveries in basic sciences. Our lab aspires to develop novel ultrasound approaches, expanding the capability and boundaries of the versatile modality through research at the intersection of acoustics, microfabrication, biomaterials, and cell biology. In this presentation, I will highlight recent results from our projects in resonant acoustic rheometry, acoustic tweezing cytometry, and acoustic patterning - with applications in tissue engineering, mechanical characterization of biomaterials and cells, coagulation assessment, mechanobiology, and stem cell differentiation. These examples illustrate our progress and future vision to expand the boundaries of biomedical ultrasound through new collaborations that leverage leading-edge innovations across disciplines.

    Biography: Dr. Cheri Deng is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan. Her research interests include the development of innovative biomedical ultrasound technologies for applications in the areas of imaging and intervention, non-viral intracellular drug and gene delivery, stem cells differentiation, formation of organoids, tissue engineering, biomaterials, biophysics, and mechanobiology. Supported by the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation, her lab has worked on various projects such as sonoporation for intracellular delivery, exosomes engineering, quantitative ultrasound imaging, high intensity focused ultrasound tissue ablation, ultrasound technologies for biomaterials/tissue engineering applications, acoustic tweezing cytometry for mechanical phenotyping and stem cell differentiation, as well as contactless acoustic bio-patterning.
    Dr. Deng received her BS in Physics from Nanjing University in China, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Yale University. She was a research staff member at Riverside Research Institute in New York City before becoming an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University in 2002. She joined the faculty of University of Michigan in 2007 and was promoted to full professor in 2013. She has served as a reviewer in various study sections for the National Institutes of Health as well as other national and international funding agencies. She is a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). Dr. Deng is currently serving as a member of the executive committee of the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan. She has taught both undergraduate and graduate level courses in the BME department, and mentored Post Doctoral Scientists, Doctoral students, as well as undergraduate student researchers

    Speaker: Niema Pahlevan, USC

    Talk Title: Hemodynamic Mechanisms of Heart-Aorta-Brain Coupling: From Fluid Dynamics to Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics

    Abstract: The circulatory system operates based on a delicate hemodynamic balance between the heart, the aorta (the largest vessel that extends from the heart), and major physiological organs, such as the brain and kidneys. Optimal hemodynamic coupling between these organs can be impaired due to aging and/or diseases. Therefore, understanding the complex fluid dynamic coupling (hemodynamic interactions) between the heart, aorta, and brain is crucial for the diagnostics and therapeutics of related diseases, such as heart failure (HF), dementia, and myocardial infarction (heart attack). The general hypothesis is that wave dynamics in the aorta dominate the pulsatile hemodynamics of the heart and brain, as well as the nonlinear interaction between the two. This talk will elucidate the systems-level effects of aortic hemodynamics on heart-brain interactions. Our long-term goal is to transform our findings into the development of diagnostic, therapeutic, and monitoring devices for heart diseases and vascular brain damage.

    Biography: Dr. Pahlevans research brings physics and mathematics tools to the study of biological systems ranging from understanding the biomechanics of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases to modeling physiological systems. His ultimate goal in each research initiative is to use mathematical and mechanical engineering principles to establish new techniques and/or devices that are relevant for practicing clinicians. Dr. Pahlevan completed his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tehran, his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the California State University Northridge, and PhD in Bioengineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). He completed his postdoctoral training in hemodynamics and cardiovascular imaging at Caltech and Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI) as a Boswell fellow. Dr. Pahlevan joined USC in 2017 as an Assistant Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering in the Viterbi School of Engineering and Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. He is the recipient of both the NSF CAREER Award and the American Heart Association Career Development Award. In 2022, he received the Junior Research Award from USC's Viterbi School of Engineering and was also appointed the holder of the Gordon S. Marshall Early Career Chair in Engineering.
