75th Anniversary Symposium - BME
August 14 2014
Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center
Join injury research experts and thought leaders at Wayne State University's symposium titled 75 years of excellence in injury research: Biomechanics, prevention, diagnosis and treatment August 14-16, 2014 Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center 400 Renaissance Drive  Detroit, Michigan Wayne State University is known worldwide for its groundbreaking work and education in bioengineering and injury biomechanics. For 75 years, the efforts of pioneers such as Professor H.R. Lissner, Dr. E.S. Gurdjian and many more have changed the face of injury research, from biomechanics and prevention to diagnosis and treatment. The Wayne State research community has participated in a myriad of studies on human tolerance to the head, spine, chest and legs; developed a reliable method for measuring angular acceleration and a six-axis transducer to measure loads in the femur; and provided crucial data for side impact protection of car occupants. More recently, mechanisms of whiplash injury, concussion, aortic rupture and primary blast-induced brain injury have been characterized. Detailed finite element models of the human body from head to foot have been developed by WSU, including a state-of-the-art human brain model. Perhaps most prominent among WSU’s accomplishments is the development of life-saving, injury-preventing devices in automobiles, such as the high penetration windshield and the collapsible steering column. To celebrate 75 years of excellence and to move injury research forward over the next 75 years, we invite you to join us August 14-16, 2014 for an international symposium on injury research in downtown Detroit, the Motor City. The symposium will feature nationally and internationally renowned speakers addressing topics such as: Recent Developments in Active and Passive Safety and Collision Avoidance Mechanisms, Diagnosis and Treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury Biomechanics and Prevention of Blast Trauma in the Military Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering Sports Injuries/Concussion Motor Vehicle Safety Injury Prevention Technology (Including military vehicles) Motor Vehicle Safety Injury Biomechanics For a full program agenda, click here.
