A story about the research of MSI PI Paul Iaizzo (professor, Surgery; Institute for Engineering in Medicine) appeared recently on the Lake Country Journal website. Professor Iaizzo studies bears and their hibernation. Such research not only benefits the bears themselves by giving wildlife scientists better information with which to manage the state’s bear population, but also can be used to improve healthcare for humans. The story can be found on the journal website: Who would dare to visit a bear? A cold day’s scientific quest.
Professor Iaizzo uses MSI for projects involving computation modeling of the cardiac cycle, cardiac imaging, and hibernation physiology.
