Novel Methods In 3D Patient Specific Modeling and Medical Device Design

Mr. Lanning's primary research and teaching experience is in advanced medical image processing and biomedical device design and development. In medical image processing, Mr. Lanning has developed and teaches BIOE 5063 - 3D Modeling for Bioengineers where graduate students master the medical image to 3D model process to optimize the device design process with physiologically correct environments and anatomy. Mr. Lanning is a co-founder of the Patients, Engineers, Doctors (PED) Design Group at the University of Colorado Denver that facilitates collaboration between students and clinicians to identify and develop technological opportunities that address unmet clinical needs and improve patient care. Mr. Lanning is a co-inventor on several patents and is actively building industry and department collaborations through service to the industrial advisory board.
