Clinical Innovation and Design, Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease (Fellowship)
Originally from Arlington, TX, Raghave Upadhyaya joins EnMed with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, combined masters degrees in computational science and engineering, and applied mathematics from the Oden Institute at UT-Austin, and a fellowship from Dell Medical School in the Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease.
“I chose EnMed because of the unlimited resources and networking avenues it has here in the famed Texas Medical Center,” he said. “Being here allows me to continue creating medical devices while educating me about the clinical spaces they will be used in as well as how to get them there.”
His prior experience includes working as a researcher at the Center for Computational Oncology in Austin where he modeled and predicted tumor response to therapies, and developed novel and cost-effective MRI protocols for breast cancer screening that are currently being used clinically. He also helped create a medical device aimed at predicting and identifying gastrointestinal pathologies during his fellowship at the Dell Medical School in Austin.
While at EnMed, Raghave plans to research the interplay between predictive power of machine learning with medical imaging modalities, the long-term effects of surgical correction in pediatric congenital abnormalities and medical devices that can be used in low-resource settings. He plans to pursue a surgical subspecialty that is focused on the pediatric patient population.
Outside of school, he enjoys traveling, playing with dogs, soccer, running and hiking.
