Kathryn Nightingale

James L. and Elizabeth M. VIncent Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering (2011 - 2016)

Professor Kathryn Nightingale heads the Nightingale Laboratory of Biomedical Engineering where she and her team investigate ultrasonic imaging methods for clinically-relevant problems using experiments and simulations. She is currently focused on the development of a novel method to generate images of the mechanical properties of tissue. In order to keep her research clinically-relevant, her team collaborates with the Duke University Medical Center in order to translate technology into actual, clinical practice.
