Vlaisavljevich Research Lab

Therapeutic Ultrasound and Non-Invasive Therapies Laboratory

Lab photo March 2023

The overarching goal of the Vlaisavljevich laboratory is to investigate the physical mechanisms with which ultrasound interacts with tissue in order to develop non-invasive therapies for a wide range of clinical applications. This work is separated into four primary research areas including Non-invasive Tissue Ablation (Histotripsy), Nanoparticle-mediated Histotripsy, Acoustically Active Biomaterials, and Low-Intensity Focused Ultrasound for Drug Delivery and Neuromodulation. In addition, the Vlaisavljevich lab has a separate research track that aims to develop Ultrasonic Technologies for Environmental Conservation and Global Health.
