The title of his talk is, "Neural Network Finite Element Modeling of the Heart Mechanics. A new look at an old problem."
Dr. Sacks is a professor of biomedical engineering and the W. A. "Tex" Moncrief, Jr. Endowment in Simulation-Based Engineering Science Chair. He is also director of the Willerson Center for Cardiovascular Modeling and Simulation. His research focuses on simulation of the function of the heart and its valves using a multiscale modeling at the cellular, tissue, and organ levels. His research center addresses both fundamental questions and clinical applications utilizing state-of-art computational methods and imaging technologies.
The lecture is sponsored by the Michigan Tech Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC).
