Welcome to the Biorheology Laboratory at the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering of the Cyprus University of Technology. 

Our research interests include rheology and fluid mechanics of blood and other complex biofuids, and our laboratory is equipped with the necessary instruments for examining the structure, the mechanical properties, and the flow behaviour of such fluids in the microscale. The methods and techniques used in the laboratory include rheometry and optical rheology,  in conjuction with microfluidics and velocimetry. The results produced in the laboratory help to elucidate fundamental mechanisms, phenomena and bio-processes, as well as to find applications in areas such as diagnostics and treatment for issues of the circulatory and microcirculatory system.
