Texas A&M University’s School of Engineering Medicine is honored to welcome Lucas (Luke) Timmins as the latest addition to our research faculty. With a rich background and a passion for unraveling the intricate connections between engineering mechanics and cardiovascular disease, Timmins is poised to drive transformative progress in patient care and management.
As Timmins states, “My journey into the realm of biomedical engineering began at Texas A&M University, where I earned my B.S. and PhD degrees in Biomedical Engineering in 2005 and 2010. This foundation provided me with the tools to embark on a path of discovery that seeks to revolutionize our understanding of cardiovascular mechanics.”
Timmins embarked on his journey in biomedical engineering at Texas A&M University. His thirst for knowledge led him to gain experience through a fellowship in the Pathology Group at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. He further honed his expertise during post-doctoral training at esteemed institutions, including Georgia Tech and Emory University School of Medicine.
Timmins’ expertise lies at the intersection of mechanics, medical imaging, and cardiovascular disease—a field that has far-reaching implications for patient well-being. His research delves deep into the coupling of mechanics and imaging to advance knowledge in the development of cardiovascular disorders, as well as their treatment. With an innovative outlook, he is dedicated to translating these findings into technologies that promise to redefine patient management.
Throughout his career, Timmins has garnered support and recognition from renowned institutions like the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, Whitaker International Program, and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. This backing underscores the significance and potential impact of his research pursuits.
Timmins also holds an appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and thus brings a multidimensional perspective to the Texas A&M University community. His collaborative approach, combined with his comprehensive understanding of cardiovascular mechanics, is poised to chart new horizons in the field.
The School of Engineering Medicine at Texas A&M University is delighted to welcome Lucas Timmins. His wealth of experience, unwavering dedication, and visionary outlook position him as a driving force in advancing our comprehension of cardiovascular disease and reshaping patient care.
