Dr. Eric Meyer, Ph.D, Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering,
Director – Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory, Lawrence Technological Unversity

Education: PhD Mechanical Engineering (Biomechanics), Michigan State University 2008
Research interests: Advance the experimental biomechanics understanding by providing practical training to engineering and medical students and advancing the boundary of knowledge through biomechanics research. To achieve these goals we combine in vivo testing of human and animal subjects with cadaver and surrogate in vitro models to understand injury mechanisms and predict failure risk. Finally, our lab collaborates with clinicians to develop preventative and regenerative treatments for soft tissue damage and degeneration.

Dr. John Powell
Associate Professor of Kinesiology and Radiology, and Clinical Athletic Trainer at MSU
Director of Graduate Studies in Sports Medicine for the Department of Kinesiology

Dr. Powell serves as a consultant for sports injury prevention and safety for the National Football League and the Big Ten Conference and is a member of the Osteopathic National Center for Orthopedic Research (ONCOR) Board of Directors. He also serves as Chair of the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Research Group. Dr. Powell’s research efforts focus on the epidemiology of sports injuries and injury prevention at all levels of competition. He has recently joined the faculty in the Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory and has initiated new research efforts in the area that addresses the mechanics of injury.
