Goldman Presents at From Lab to Marketplace

How do discoveries in university labs turn into commercially available—and potentially lifesaving—products?

This Wednesday, May 25, 2016, teams of Michigan Tech scientists and engineers will present their innovative technologies to a state funding review committee. The reviewers, officially designated an Oversight Committee, will be making decisions on grants from the Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization (MTRAC) program, a $6 million state-funded program developed and managed by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) to help commercialize university translational research.

An example of a team that will present on Wednesday afternoon is Professor Jarek Drelich (MSE) and Associate Professor Jeremy Goldman (BME). They are working on developing a metal alloy that would perform well as a biodegradable stent for heart surgery and other uses where a biodegradable material is desirable. They have been working for some time to find a material with all the necessary properties that will biodegrade harmlessly in the body over a set period of time.

Biomedical Engineering Graduate Seminar: Design and Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing Data

image125972-persBiomedical Engineering Graduate Seminar: Friday, October 30-3:00 pm, U113 M&M
The Department of Biomedical Engineering presents: Dr. Kui Zhang, Professor, Mathematical Sciences, Michigan Technological University

Title: Design and Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing Data

In this talk, I will present my recent research on design and analysis of next generation sequencing (NGS) data. The talk can be divided into two parts. The first part of the talk will focus on developments of novel statistical methods. The Hidden Markov Model in genotype calling from NGS data will be intro-duced. Its extension that can use additional information from sequencing reads for improvements will be described. The further extensions that can use family samples and admixed sample will be discussed. The second part of the talk will mainly be on several collaborative projects including the identification of genetic variants that are associated with HIV infection in a genetic association study, a study with the RNA sequencing technologies, etc. The problems and the statistical methods used in these analysis will be discussed.
