Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description: Product Development Projects

Team MTD designed, developed, fabricated, assembled and tested a prototype anti-thrombosis device, in collaboration with LSSU’s Product Development Center (PDC). This device was a redesign of a previous senior project/PDC prototype for Dr. G. Chandran, of the Cardiovascular Research Institute of Albuquerque, New
Mexico. It uses a new technique to prevent blood clots in the legs of non-ambulatory patients. The design requirements included small size, low power, low noise, and precision timing of events to ensure optimum performance.

Student Research...

Amanda Zoerner Honors Biology Pre-veterinary Science, Business Minor

Amanda studied the interaction of genes that determine coat color in English Springer Spaniels. Springers are medium-sized hunting dogs that display a variety of colors and markings, depending upon the interaction of several genes. Zoerner's study used polymerase chain reaction and restriction enzyme analysis in the laboratory to detect gene mutations that caused differences in coat color.
