Polymeric Heart Valve System and Method of Manufacture
This invention is a new polymer-based heart valve designed to reduce stress on the leaflets of the valve while in use in the human body, providing for longer-term durability compared to other polymer-based valves. Background: According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States: about one in every four deaths is due...

Biomarker Signatures of Platelet Activation
This invention is a mechanical biomarker signature of shear effects on cells for the purpose of detecting thrombosis early so it can be treated or intercepted prior to a thrombotic event. Background: Thrombosis is a pathophysiological event that can trigger conditions like stroke or heart attack. The efficacy of many antithrombotic agents is shear...

HyperShear in a Channel: A Microfluidic Facsimile of Ventricular Assist Devices to Reduce Thrombotic Risk and Enhance Patient Safety
This technology utilizes device thrombogenicity emulation--a method which mimics the shear stresses that would be exhibited within the patient in order to assess proper anti-thrombolytic therapies. Shear stresses are observed in a microfluidic facsimile of a ventricular assist device (VAD), which can quickly be translated to assess the personal risk...
