- 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

- COS Pivot/WSU ResearchConnect Training
September 23 2014 at 2:00 PM
Undergraduate Library, David Adamany
Faculty, staff and students are invited to a hands-on demonstration to learn how to join and use COS Pivot and WSU ResearchConnect.
Wayne State University subscribes to COS Pivot, the single most comprehensive source of funding information available. Whether your work is in the sciences or the arts, COS Pivot services can help support and advance your research. Much more efficient than Googling, the database is an aggregation of funding information that is verified for accuracy, updated for currency and formatted for quick, targeted searching. COS Pivot is available to all current WSU faculty, staff and students.

In an effort to promote and facilitate interdisciplinary research, Wayne State University is committed to using innovative research tools and information technologies to promote collaboration. ResearchConnect is one of these tools which provides a searchable database of expertise across most disciplines at WSU. Explore the profiles, publications, and grant data of hundreds of researchers within our university. Follow the network and collaborations within WSU, throughout the SciVal Experts Community, and across the national DIRECT and VIVO networks. The publications and grants listed for faculty members reflect their expertise in the unit(s) with which they are affiliated here at WSU or at prior institutions and offer a snapshot of their knowledge and interests.
This training seminar will take place Tuesday, September 23, 2014, 2-3:30 p.m., in the Undergraduate Library, Computer Lab A.
This event is free, but space is limited, and registration is required!
