Event description

Description

We are donating $100 per attendee to Houston ISD
in our upcoming biomedical seminar in support of Houston schools.

Have you ever wondered how simulation is currently used in the life science industry to advance medical device design and development?

VIAS cordially invites you to participate in our half day Advanced Biomedical Simulation Seminar at the Texas Medical Center in Houston. Our seminar will feature presentations from leaders in the biomedical engineering field. Our partner Abaqus SIMULIA provides a simulation platform for medical devices, stents, heart assist devices, tissue modeling, drug delivery equipment and orthopedics.

Detailed Agenda

Presenters

Steven Levine

SIMULIA

Sr. Director of Product Strategy and the Executive Director of the Living Heart Project at Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA. Since 2006, Steve has been responsible for driving the SIMULIA strategy towards its vision of enabling simulation to help harmonize Product, Nature and Life.. Steve holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Rutgers University and has been elected into the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE)'s College of Fellows.



Manuel Rausch

University of Texas

Originally from Germany, Dr. Rausch earned his PhD from Stanford University in 2013 before taking on the role of Director of R&D at a small medical device company. After a two year stint in industry, Dr. Rausch returned to academia as a post-doctoral fellow at Yale University. As of 2017, Dr. Rausch is an assistant professor at University of Texas, Austin's Department of Aerospace Engineering & Engineering Mechanics.Dr. Rausch's research interests are focused on soft tissue biomechanics. He uses experimental as well as computational tools to characterize and understand the mechanical behavior of biological soft tissues such as myocardium, vascular soft tissue, heart valve tissue, and skin to improve diagnostic and therapeutic methods, and medical device design.
