A new partnership between Nottingham Spirk, a global product design and business innovation firm known for creating some of the world’s most popular consumer items, and Case Western Reserve University will engage and inspire the next generation of inventors in new ways.
Nottingham Spirk will create an environment of partnership and innovation on the first level of Case Western Reserve’s seven-story think[box] innovation center. The company is also partnering with faculty members to develop high-quality concepts into marketable products faster and to protect those innovations with additional intellectual property.
Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, has been elected unanimously to the National Cancer Institute's Quantitative Imaging Network (QIN).
The network is designed to promote research and development of quantitative imaging methods for the measurement of tumor response to therapies in clinical trial settings, with the overall goal of facilitating clinical decision-making.
OneCommunity, Case Western Reserve University and BlueBridge Networks are giving local girls a chance to bring forth their ideas on technology and innovation and collaborate. This first-ever, free event taking place March 13-14 will allow young women, ages 13-18, to brainstorm and collaborate on their ideas, and will provide an opportunity to win local prizes. At this Olympiad, they will learn more about technology, as well as meet each other and other women who are shaping the future.
Buildings that rock during an earthquake and return to plumb would withstand seismic shaking better than structural designs commonly used in vulnerable zones of California and elsewhere, a Case Western Reserve University researcher has found.
Those buildings would also be more easily and cheaply repaired and put back into use more quickly, said Michael Pollino, an assistant civil engineering professor at the Case School of Engineering.
