How this team is built

The multidisciplinary nature of the work conducted in this laboratory demands necessitates many skillsets to execute the work required. The main skillsets utilized are: SolidWorks modeling, prototyping (additive and subtractive), anatomical model development (CAD and physical), electronics (circuit design and PCB layout), and code development. It is the perspective of the Principal Investigator that while the graduate students are specializing in their particular research directions, the undergraduates should be exposed to many research techniques. Typically, the undergraduates rotate through various aspects of the lab. Once rotation through 3 primary areas has occurred, the student is given a project to complete involving one of those areas.

Coverage on the developments in the laboratory and its members.

"The University of Louisiana Lafayette’s Artificial Heart Lab, doesn’t make artificial hearts. It uses artificial hearts to test devices designed to help real hearts work better. Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Charles Taylor, who started the lab, is leading the testing to get the devices approved for use."

WWNO Wallis Watkins Journalist

"When you step onto a plane or sit down in the front seat of your car you trust the mechanics to get you where you need to go. Wouldn’t you like that same send of security when you’re laying down on a operating table scheduled for heart surgery? Here at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette the Cajun Artificial Heart Lab is doing that for patients with 3D printings of anatomical models."

KLFY Brheanna Berry News Anchor/Reporter

"Here, you see student capabilities you just don’t see with traditional biomedical programs around the country,” [Dr. Taylor] said. “Typically, biomedical schools are good at getting their students ready for med school, but the biomedical field could really benefit from having the capabilities these mechanical engineering students have."
