Ündar has also established an International Conference on Pediatric Mechanical Circulatory Support Systems and Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Perfusion.
The first annual meeting was held at the Hotel Hershey, Hershey, Pennsylvania in May of 2005.His passion is the development of novel technologies and methodologies to be used in minimizing the adverse effects of cardiovascular operations, mechanical circulatory support systems and cardiopulmonary bypass procedures in neonates, infants, and children. Ündar focuses on research in minimizing cerebral, myocardial, pulmonary, and renal injury during and after pediatric cardiopulmonary bypass procedures and mechanical circulatory support.His research specialties include pediatric heart-lung machines, pulsatile versus non-pulsatile perfusion, pediatric mechanical circulatory support systems, complement, neutrophil, platelet, and cytokine inhibition during pediatric open-heart procedures, microdevices for measuring systemic inflammation in real-time, detection and classification of microemboli, blood viscoelasticity, and plasma proteomics.PREFERRED TITLE/ROLE: Professor of Pediatrics, Surgery, and Bioengineering SECONDARY APPOINTMENT(S)/ INSTITUTE(S)/ CENTER(S): Surgery and Bioengineering GRADUATE PROGRAM AFFILIATIONS: Bioengineering, MD/Ph D Degree Program EDUCATION: B.
