(LACAM) was established jointly by SMHS and SEAS in 1995. It is co-directed by Prof. James Hahn, who represents SEAS, and Prof. Raymond Walsh, who represents SMHS. Seed funding from the two participating schools equipped LACAM with initial computing equipment. The research activities in LACAM have concentrated primarily on the use of simulation and visualization for surgical training, planning, and computer guidance. Medical students participate in research projects alongside engineering students, thus enhancing their educational experiences.

  The Motion Capture and Analysis (MOCA) Laboratory operates under the auspices of the Institute for Computer Graphics and in partnership with the Institute for Biomedical Engineering. MOCA provides the infrastructure, including laboratory space, equipment and support personnel, to enable researchers, educators, and clinicians across the University and the greater Washington D.C. area to capture, analyze, and apply digitized human motion for a variety of applications. The equipment consists of VICON Infrared motion capture equipment and associated computing equipment.

The laboratory was made possible by the University Research Enhancement Fund and will be devoted to the study of human (and other) motion in science, art, engineering, and medicine.

Micropropulsion and Nanotechnology Laboratory
  The Micropropulsion and Nanotechnology Laboratory of Professor Keidar is active in the experimental and theoretical study of plasmas. Current application areas include electric propulsion, atmospheric plasma jets, carbon nanotube synthesis and applications, hypersonics, plasma-wall interactions and arc discharges.We have ongoing collaborative studies with colleagues at the George Washington University, other universities, and government laboratories.

Micropropulsion and Nanotechnology Laboratory

Located on the Foggy Bottom campus of The George Washington University, within the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE), the Biofluid Dynamics Lab (BDL) is directed by Professor Michael W. Plesniak. Research in the BDL focuses on experimental in vitro investigations of unsteady, viscous physiological flows. Most processes within the body involve laminar, or non-turbulent fluid flow, but aeroacoustics of speech and pathological blood flow through arteries are rare exceptions that offer a wealth of challenging fluid dynamics issues.
