Wright State University will host Ohio Orthopaedic Research and Innovation Day on Thursday, June 2, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., in room 156 Student Union on the WSU main campus.
The program brings together engineers, orthopaedic clinicians and researchers to exchange ideas and foster innovation in orthopaedic devices that can spur economic development in Ohio. Medical students, residents and fellows, biomedical engineering students of all levels, students from biomedical sciences and advisors are invited to participate in this open forum to develop strong academic and industry partnerships within the state.
The forum will be led by Tarun Goswami, D.Sc., of the Department of Biomedical, Industrial & Human Factors Engineering, and Richard T. Laughlin, M.D., of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation.
The event is free for all registrants, and box lunches will be provided. Please RSVP to Dr. Goswami (firstname.lastname@example.org ; 937.775.5120) by Friday, May 27.

Mary Dallman, Ph.D. (left), professor of physiology at the University of California-San Francisco, will be the keynote speaker at OMV-SfN’s 2011 Neuroscience Day on Friday, May 20, at Wright State University. Dr. Dallman’s research studies the effects of chronic stress on brain-pituitary-adrenal interrelationships.
“Chronic stress has a variety of effects on the organism, including changes in energy balance, behavior and responsivity to new stimuli,” she says. “These effects of chronic stress are probably mediated in large part by the central corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) neuronal system and glucocorticoids secreted from the adrenal gland in response to drive from hypothalamic CRF. Moreover, all of these are affected strongly by circadian rhythms.” Read more.
Neuroscience Day also will feature student presentations and a poster session. See more program details.
Registration for Neuroscience Day is free for 2011 OMV-SfN members. Please register in advance so the organizers can plan accordingly for the attendance. If you are not an OMV-SfN member for 2011, please join now. You can also join OMV-SfN at Neuroscience Day on May 20.
