Edward Damiano, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. His educational training is in the areas of biomedical and mechanical engineering and applied mathematics. His lab is engaged in basic scientific research that uses fluid dynamics, solid mechanics, and intravital microscopy to study blood flow in the microcirculation and to elucidate mechanisms by which the lining of blood vessels can determine vascular health and disease. In one study, his lab is investigating the effect of hyperglycemia in diabetic mice with the goal of finding ways to counteract the damage to blood vessels that leads to so many of the well-known complications of diabetes. In addition to this research, he is also committed to creating and integrating closed-loop blood-glucose control technologies. His interest in closed-loop control is quite personal, and began when his seven-year-old son, David, developed type 1 diabetes at the age of one. A goal of his is to have the control algorithm that was developed by one of his postdoctoral fellows, Dr. Firas El-Khatib, hard at work closing the loop for people with diabetes before David starts high school.
