Biothermal Sciences Lab


About the BSL

The Villanova University Biothermal Sciences Laboratory (BSL) is dedicated to the investigation of multiscale thermal and transport phenomena in biological systems. It is the home of an interdisciplinary research group directed by Prof. Jens Karlsson in the Mechanical Engineering Department.

The BSL is a modern research facility located in the Center for Engineering Education and Research on Villanova's main campus, which is only 10 miles away from downtown Philadelphia. The laboratory houses state-of-the-art instrumentation for undergraduate and graduate research, including facilities for cell and tissue culture, cryopreservation, advanced biological microscopy, ultra-high speed imaging, and bioMEMS fabrication.
