Biofluid Mechanics Lab in the ICM
The task of the laboratory, founded 1985 by Klaus Affeld, is to apply engineering methods to problems of medicine. The focus here is on fluid mechanics in medicine. The development of new medical products and measurement techniques is just as much a part of this as the use of numerical methods. The laboratory is part of the Institute for Imaging Science and Computational Modelling in Cardiovascular Medicine (ICM) at Charité Center 11 for Cardiovascular Diseases.
