- 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
Motor Vehicle Safety Injury Prevention Technology (Including military vehicles)
Motor Vehicle Safety Injury Biomechanics

- Write Winning Grant Proposals (Hypothesis-Driven Research)
November 5 2014 at 8:30 AM
McGregor Memorial Conference Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host a research grant writing proposal seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students. The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus.
The main campus seminar will take place November 5, 2014, from 8:30 AM to 5 PM in the McGregor Memorial Conference Center.
The seminar is for hypothesis-driven research (medical, biological and physical sciences and engineering). Light morning refreshments and lunch will be served.
The seminar will address both conceptual and practical aspects that are associated with the grant-writing process. It will emphasize idea development, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that have kept the co-founders of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops funded continuously for over twenty-five years.
Each attendee will receive a copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook. You will need to identify which workbook you need at the time of registration. Below is the list of available versions from which you can select.
The NIH Edition. Required for all submitting NIH proposals
The NSF Edition. Required for all submitting NSF proposals
Successful Proposals to Any Agency. USDA Edition with updated insert
The fee for seminar materials is $75 and may be paid for by personal check or through a department index account transfer. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot.
Registration is limited!
Registration and required infomormation must be completed by October 10, 2014.
