Dr. Amanda Randles of Duke University Biomedical Engineering was recently recognized by MIT Technology Review’s “35 Innovators Under 35” for her outstanding work creating a simulation of blood flow through the human body based on a particular person’s unique medical images.
“Our goal is to build personalized blood flow simulations that can be used to improve diagnosis and treatment of a range of human diseases. By leveraging the largest supercomputers in the world, we are enabling high-resolution, patient-specific models that can provide insight into the underlying mechanisms driving disease localization and progression. We work closely with physicians here at Duke, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and UCSD to ensure that the work is applicable, relevant, and translational,” explains Dr. Randles.
“It was very exciting to be included on a list that has had so many accomplished people on it like Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Mark Zuckerberg, Ed Boyden, etc. Even from Duke, Jennifer West, Nimmi Ramanujam, and Jon Viventi. I feel incredibly honored to be included,” Randles said.
Congratulations to Amanda and her team, we look forward to hearing more about her work!
