Structure Function Imaging Laboratory

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Sciences SEASColumbia University in the City of New York
Department of Electrical Engineering


The objective of the structure function imaging laboratory is to develop high-resolution optical imaging modalities and real-time image analysis for understand how structural remodeling affects function of organ systems such as the heart and the breast.  Our research program ranges from basic science applications of understanding how cellular structures result in mechanical and electrical functional abnormalities, to translational applications for monitoring treatments of arrhythmia.
