SBC2012 CFD Challenge

After years of talking about it, Frank Loth and I are finally running a CFD Challenge, at the 2012 ASME Summer Bioengineering Conference.  Details are available here, and you can email me for data/instructions on how to proceed with the first phase.

Comings and Goings

Some recent personnel changes at the BSL, celebrated as shown to the left:

Kristian Valen-Sendstad, who joins the BSL as a postdoc from Simula Research Labs in Norway, to continue his work on cerebral aneurysm hemodynamics.

Muhammad Owais Khan, who joins the BSL as a Master's student, investigating the role of curvature on arterial flow patterns.

And, finally, Yiemeng Hoi, who leaves the BSL for bigger and better (or at least more lucrative :-) things at Toshiba.
