It’s a little bit later than usual, but we are excited to share with you the spring/summer 2014 edition of the University of Michigan Biomedical Engineering News. This issue provides an in-depth look at our cutting edge research and the people challenging conventions throughout our discipline.
We are pleased to offer our publication in a digital edition for simple viewing from a desktop browser or your favorite mobile device.
ROW BLUE! From July 2-6, a squad of Michigan rowers will represent the Block M on the River Thames, an hour west of London. Recent U-M BME grad Alex Crawford and six more of the other twelve U-M oarsmen competing are engineering majors! More than 100,000 spectators, including much of the Royal Family, will be in attendance. To read the full Michigan Engineering article see: http://umicheng.in/1iQLDL9
An article that BME Associate Professor David Sept authored with Ron Bose and other collaborators from Washington University in St. Louis was selected as a 2013 paper of the year in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. It won in the signal transduction category for providing the first structural characterization of HER2-HER3 heterodimers used in cancer therapy. The paper is titled Carboxyl Group Footprinting Mass Spectrometry and Molecular Dynamics Identify Key Interactions in the HER2-HER3 Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Interface.
