Alison Marsden's lab is focused on developing tools for simulating the cardiovascular system, with a particular focus on blood flow in the vasculature and the heart. Alison and her students build patient specific models from medical image data to customize models for individual patients, which represents their particular vascular anatomy. They can then use those models to run simulations of blood flow, which allows us to do virtual surgery, virtual treatment planning or risk assessment.
