Ajit P. Yoganathan, Regents' Professor and associate chair for graduate studies in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, a joint department of the Georgia Institute of Technology College of Engineering and the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, will deliver a Caterpillar Distinguished Lecture at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in Lecture Room 1 of Van Allen Hall.

Yoganathan, whose areas of research interest include cardiovascular fluid mechanics, artificial heart valves and Doppler ultrasound, plans to discuss congenital heart defects in his talk, "Palliating Congenital Heart Lesions: Developing Diagnostic Tools and Surgical Planning."

The lecture, free and open to the public, is sponsored by the University of Iowa College of Engineering and the Caterpillar Foundation.

The Caterpillar Distinguished Lecture Colloquium is made possible by grants awarded to the UI College of Engineering through the UI Foundation by the Caterpillar Foundation of Peoria, Ill.
