Julio Garcia Flores
Clinical Associate Professor
- Flow Hemodynamics, Experimental Models, Cardiac Magnetic Resonance
I graduated in Biomedical Engineering at Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana (Mexico) in 2006. I completed my MSc and PhD in Experimental Medicine at Laval University (Quebec City, Canada) in 2012. I have postdoctoral training in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging at Northwestern University (Chicago, USA) and at the Stephenson Cardiac Imaging Centre (University of Calgary, Canada). My industrial experience includes the conception and testing (in-vitro, in-vivo with animals) of several new medical devices and medical software design advising. My research focus in cardiac imaging and experimental models from simple solutions to state-of-the-art 3D printing and used multiple imaging technologies evaluating cardiovascular flow hemodynamics. I am a junior fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance Imaging and the Mexican National Research System (SNI-I).
