Arthrex Partners with MSU College of Engineering and Medicine
With a focus on exploring and defining collaborative innovation initiatives, the Michigan State University College of Engineering department visited Arthrex Inc. earlier this month to highlight the university’s commitment to advancing science in orthopaedics. Over their two-day visit, MSU Provost, College of Human Medicine Dean, College of Engineering Dean and Engineering Department Chairs from Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Computational Math and Science Engineering toured the Arthrex campus and presented the resources each of their departments are equipped with and how they could be an asset to Arthrex’s own developmental efforts.
“This innovate partnership could be a win-win for MSU’s engineering students and Arthrex’s efforts in future product development,” said Vice President of Engineering Ricardo Albertorio. “Collaboration would expose MSU students to real-world engineering challenges, and would allow Arthrex access to cutting-edge technologies in the fields of sensors, computation and biomedical simulation.”
Director of Research Josh Karnes added, “MSU Leadership was appreciative of our co-op program where students have the opportunity to attain hands-on experience in our research facilities. Furthermore, we at Arthrex were impressed with the technical capabilities of the MSU staff and student body, and we are hopeful for future collaborations.
Last fall, Arthrex President and Founder Reinhold Schmieding was honored as one of Michigan State University’s (MSU) Most Distinguished Alumni. The award honors MSU Spartans who strive to address the world’s most pressing problems. With this partnership, we look forward to collaborating with MSU Engineering for years to come.
