CDMI faculty have a long history of successfully implementing innovations in collaboration with industry. The CDMI continues to foster collaborative relationships between our industry advisors and university researchers to target novel strategies and technologies that decrease injuries, lower healthcare costs of those injuries, and improve the management of and quality of life for musculoskeletal disease patients. As such, the Industry Advisory Board continues to grow.
We welcome our newest Industry Advisory Board members, Fumie Yusa, PhD of Rosies Base!
"In 2019, our parent company, Komatsuseiki Kosakusho Co. Ltd. (KS) became an industrial member of CDMI. KS is a typical Japanese SME, and it was a very difficult task for us to find a joint research opportunity using academic-industrial alliance in the US. Fortunately, Dr. Thomas Webster at Northeastern University introduced KS to the IUCRC and CDMI. KS was fortunate to have the opportunity to carry out R&D activities while listening to the opinions from authorities in the field. The CDMI was one of the reasons why KS decided to open a US subsidiary, Rosies Base, in 2020. Rosies Base is excited to develop useful technology for society through the CDMI."
