Helping clinicians to better understand pediatric injury from falls. Speed School faculty are using crash test dummies to fill the void in evidence based data.
Biomedical Applications & Devices
From diagnostics to application, engineers are rapidly becoming essential partners in finding solutions for our greatest medical challenges. Our research is contributing to earlier and more reliable detection of cancers and infectious diseases, targeted drug delivery, and increasing the survival of donor organs. Research in this area bridges the gap between medical discoveries and saving lives by creating the diagnostic tools and delivery devices that increases the efficacy of a patient’s treatment.

Active targeting of cancer cells using nanoparticles is becoming a new standard in cancer treatment. Divya Karukonda, 2017
Ascending bus ramps require greater power and pushrim force on steeper ramp slopes, presenting a potential barrier to transportation accessibility. Given this finding, it is imperative that bus operators minimize ramp slope to assure MWC users are able to access LATVs.
