John F. Eberth, PhD, is a cardiovascular engineer with graduate and post-doctoral training in mechanical controls, continuum biomechanics, and hydrogel-based extra-cellular matrix mimetics. With a long and rich history of medical innovation, members of Dr. Eberth’s Applied Biomechanics and Mechanobiology Lab (ABML) use fundamental engineering principles to understand, manipulate, and guide inherent and acquired tissue behavior. Using multi-scale and multi-species approaches combined with theoretical and mathematical modeling, extensive experimental verification, and eventual clinical translation, the Eberth Lab’s research centers around the behavior of healthy and diseased blood vessels as they grow and remodel in response to mechanical stimuli.
