Research

research overview

  • Dr Tan’s laboratory is mainly interested in the interdisciplinary research at the cross-section of nano-materials and mechanics with vascular medicine. The main research goal of the lab is to improve fundamental understanding as to how material properties and mechanical stresses play critical roles in remodeling or regeneration of blood vessels, and based on this understanding, to develop new therapeutic or diagnostic approaches for cardiovascular diseases. Our lab currently has several projects, all aiming at understanding the roles of materials and mechanics in arterial disease, remodeling or regeneration

Teaching

courses taught

  • MCEN 1024 - Chemistry for Energy and Materials Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Covers the basic physical and chemical fundamentals underlying the disciplines of energy and materials, with a focus on topics relevant to your mechanical engineering education. These fundamentals include atomic structure, stoichiometry, the periodic table, chemical bonding, states of matter, thermochemistry and chemical reactions. Department enforced prerequisite: one year of high school chemistry. Credit not granted for this course and CHEN 1211.
  • MCEN 4117 - Anatomy and Physiology for Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Explores human physiological function from an engineering, specifically mechanical engineering, viewpoint. Provides an introduction to human anatomy and physiology with a focus on learning fundamental concepts and applying engineering (mass transfer, fluid dynamics, mechanics, modeling) analysis. Same as MCEN 5117.
  • MCEN 4228 - Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Fall 2018 / Summer 2019 / Fall 2019
    Subject matter to be selected from topics of current interest. May be repeated up to 15 credit hours. Same as MCEN 5228.
