Zurich Heart

CMASLab participates in the Zurich Heart project. The goal of this project is to develop a hyperelastic hybrid membrane for a biomimetic blood propulsion system.

Our research in this project focuses on the optimization of the pump chamber to minimize the mechanical loading on the hybrid membrane and the blood. Read more

SCCER Mobility

CMASLab is a member of the SCCER Mobility project which helps the current fossil fuel-based transportation system transition to a sustainable one with minimal CO2 output and zero-pollutant emissions.

Our research within this project is in developing cost-effective novel materials and processes for thermoplastic composite materials for applications in the automotive industry. Read more
