The biomedical engineering and life science faculty have been busy this past summer implementing new activities and opportunities for our freshman through senior students.  Returning students have noticed that room E108 – Bioinstrumentation Lab now has a new look.  The biomechanics gait analysis laboratory has secured funding from the DENSO Foundation to support research in human and machine interaction (see story on page xx).  We are very excited about this collaboration with the electrical engineering and robotic engineering programs.  Freshman students are enjoying working in the new collaboration space in room E109.   When you are on your way to the Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope or the BioMEMS laboratories, stop by to check out the new learning environment.

The Life Science Advisory Board welcomes two new members.  Mrs. Janelle Schrot from Materilize (MIMICS suite) and Dr. Ren You from Terumo Heart Inc. We look forward to working with these members and organizations as we continue to improve and expand the biomedical engineering program.

Finally, the biomedical engineering program thanks all the students and alumni who accepted the invitation to participate in the focus group meetings in the spring semester.  The focus groups provided valuable input on the needs and expectations of program graduates.  The biomedical engineering program educational objectives articulate the expected capabilities of graduates 3 to 5 years after graduation and they are:

  1. Graduates of the BSBME program apply foundational sciences and a wide range of engineering principles in order to lead cross-functional teams developing, designing, and verifying the function of medical technologies and services.   
  2.  Graduates of the BSBME program conduct translational biomedical engineering research while adhering to government compliance requirements and regulatory protocols.
  3.  Graduates of the BSBME program exhibit and demand the highest ethical and safety standards in their research and profession.
  4.  Graduates of the BSBME program are contributing members of the profession and society, and stay informed of current research and professional developments through advanced graduate studies and life-long education.

Enjoy your fall semester and your journey in discovering Lawrence Technological University!

This summer I had the wonderful opportunity of conducting neuro-engineering research at New Jersey Institute of Technology. This National Science Foundation-funded Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program was one-of-a-kind research experience. My team and I had the pleasure of working under the direction of NJIT professor who is doing pioneering research in neuro-engineering, It’s burgeoning field that uses engineering to analyze, repair, or enhance the nervous system.

Neurite Outgrowth

Neurite Outgrowth

My team’s project is entitled “Encapsulation of Schwann cells for Neurite Outgrowth in a Microfluidic Device”. Our study explored the effectiveness of Schwann cell (SC) microencapsulation for Growth Fact or (GF) release using a microfluidic device for simplified analysis. SC surrounded in a polyelectrolyte membrane, Alginate-Poly-L-Lyine-Alginate (APA), were co-cultured with PC12 cells to model neurite formation. Results showed that microencapsulated SC elicited neurite outgrowth and neural cell differentiation in-vitro. This showed that microencapsulated Schwann cells secrete enough Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) to induce nerve growth. SC encapsulated in APA have yet to be studied in relation to how they differentiate neural cells. This study has showed that after encapsulating SC in APA spheres the SC were able to induce neurite outgrowth from PC12 cells. This concept can be applied to the treatment of nerve regeneration in patients affected by neuropathy.

Footwear Properties and Football Injuries

Comments Off

FootwareExcessive rotational traction that occurs at the interface between the shoe and the playing surface, as well as shoe properties such as rotational stiffness, may have the potential to influence the high incidence of lower extremity injuries in athletes.

By Feng Wei, PhD, and Eric G. Meyer, PhD

American football is one of the most popular sports in the United States. In 2010 more than 1.1 million male high school athletes from more than 14,000 high schools and more than 66,000 male collegiate athletes played football. Participation in high school football has been continuously increasing, with more than 100,000 additional participants (a 12.2% increase) between 1997 and 2007. Football is also a leading cause of sports-related injuries. Out of all high school sports, football has the highest overall injury rate, almost twice that of basketball. Reports estimate that more than 300,000 high school athletes sustain football-related injuries annually…read more. Dr. Meyer
