The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.

The goals of NREIP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.

NREIP provided competitive research internships to approximately 590 college students last summer. Participating students spend ten weeks during the summer conducting research at approximately 36 DoN laboratories.

NREIP’s Online Application closes on November 30, 2016! Apply Here!

Comments Off on Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) – Summer 2017

National Science Foundation funded Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) will offer a summer (June 13-August 18) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in 2017 at University of Washington at Seattle. Students in the program will have the opportunity to participate in innovative research at the neural interface, as well as to attend special sessions on ethics, communication skills, laboratory safety and other selected topics. (CNSE REU)

At the end of the 10 week program students will present their work to the CSNE community in a research symposium.  Details about the program and application materials can be found at: http://csne-erc.org/content/research-experience-undergraduates

There are many other universities that offer REU experiences during summer and you can search for them here.

Interested students should email the contacts listed for each site directly. These programs are excellent experience for anyone but especially students who are interested in graduate research. Most programs provide a stipend as well as support for travel and housing.

Taubman Complex Progress

Comments Off on Taubman Complex Progress

As we make our way through summer we move closer to the opening of the newest building on campus, the Taubman Complex. The Taubman Complex was designed with Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) in mind as it aims to bring together biomedical engineering, robotics, life sciences and architectural engineering under one roof. The building will feature new lab spaces and studio classrooms to build upon the idea of theory and practice.

The move in date for the Taubman Complex is set for July 5, 2016. As the day approaches construction is starting to wind down as they move closer to completion and begin stocking it with equipment and furniture.  Be sure to check out some of the sneak peek photos posted below.

Annual Research Day (April 8th,2016)

Comments Off on Annual Research Day (April 8th,2016)

Research Day celebrates the incredible breadth of research being conducted across Lawrence Technological University. On the day faculty and students present research activities in presentations and posters. This is a great way to learn about the research process and find projects that you want to be involved in.

All BME students who have been involved in directed research projects over summer or during regular school year, are required highly encouraged to submit an abstract. This will not only pad your resumes but also give you some valuable presentation practice. The abstracts are due with March 25th and you should work with your research mentor on abstract preparation.

Team Bike Raptor is a collaboration project between LTU and University of Detroit-Mercy (UDM) and the group is comprised of three students each from Biomedical Engineering students (LTU), Mechanical Engineering and  Nursing (UDM). The goal is to design and fabricate a working device for our client who was in an automobile accident and sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI) that left him with incomplete quadriplegia. The client has made some recovery and he has recovered some of the movement in his arms. It was determined that a custom exercise device will aid in his rehabilitation. The machine, Bike-Raptor, targets strengthening of muscles and increasing range of motion. The design allows the client to push on pedal-like handles attached to a wheel with magnetic resistance mechanism. It is our hope that this machine will improve his rehabilitation efforts so he can gain independence at a faster pace than without this type of exercise.

Lawrence Tech setup a booth in the exhibit to promote the new Masters of Science in Biomedical Engineering at LTU and the students also helped out with the booth. Overall it was a great experience for everyone with some excellent talks and panel discussions. The weather in Tampa was also not too shabby
