Computational Modeling of the Heart and its Valves

Age group: High School

Join Professor Michael Sacks and members of his research team to learn how heart valves work.  A world authority on cardiovascular biomechanics, Dr. Sacks will demonstrate how engineers study heart valves to design improved repair methods and replacements, as well as the advanced tools that are a part of their research.
