- Distinguished biomedical engineering professor discusses current WSU crash safety research, Mar 5, 2014
- Everything from the padding on the dashboard to the thickness of the windshield is designed to help keep you alive in the event of an automobile crash. That knowledge comes from experiments and crash tests conducted on crash test dummies. The crash tests often are conducted on human cadavers because engineers and designers need to know exactly what it takes to injure every major organ and bone in our bodies and try to design vehicles to protect us from those forces. The first place to ever conduct cadaver testing was Wayne State University. Its Bioengineering Center has studied impact biomechanics since 1939. Albert King, distinguished professor in biomedical engineering at Wayne State, talked about current research projects. King said that several years ago he did some research on the effectiveness of crash tests and found that about 12 lives were saved for every test conducted.

- Southeast Michigan Purchasing Managers Index dips for February, Mar 4, 2014
- The Southeast Michigan Purchasing Managers Index for February dipped to 47.3, down from 52.3 in January. A value above 50 suggests economic growth, with a value below 50 indicating a slowing economy. The slowdown is likely an aberration in what has been steady economic growth locally, said Timothy Butler, an associate professor of supply chain management at Wayne State University's School of Business Administration. "Though the southeastern Michigan economy has slowed a bit, there's no reason to believe that this is a long-term slowdown. At most, it could be described as a temporary cooling of the economy," he said. "The southeastern Michigan economy has been consistently strong since coming out of the recession. We should not be too concerned about two or three months of poorer results during this time of year," he said.
- Old, new are blended to create WSU Biomedical building, Mar 3, 2014
- The Multidisciplinary Biomedical Research Building, located along Amsterdam Street between Woodward and Cass, is the biggest project in Wayne State’s history. The $93 million project will create about 200,000 square-feet of space for about 450 researchers and staff, including wet and dry laboratories, faculty offices and common areas, as well as clinical space. “This project brings together a number of biomedical disciplines under one roof, and will give researchers a better opportunity to share and collaborate,” said Wayne State University director-project management Anne Vandenbussche. “But the placement of this project is also visually an important feature, offering a gateway to the north end of the campus.”
- MS treatment advances at Wayne State University, Mar 3, 2014
- Michigan is one of the states in the country most affected by MS with 20,000-30,000 cases currently reported. There have been advances in treatment at Wayne State University’s School of Medicine where studies determined that higher doses of Copaxone, which is used to treat MS, reduces the number of times patients have to get it injected every week. Doctors say treatment is critical in controlling MS. “We have so many treatment options that I think seeking advice and evaluation for symptoms is critical,” says Dr. Omar Khan, professor and chair of neurology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. “Establishing the diagnosis, if it is indeed MS, is very important and then starting treatment early is extremely important. One message in the MS awareness week is that if one does have multiple sclerosis, the sooner one starts treatment, the better the outcomes.”
