Clemson University opens bioengineering research lab at Greenville hospital campus
Date:12/9/2011

GREENVILLE, S.C. From their fourth-floor state-of-the-art laboratory in the heart of Greenville Hospital System's Patewood campus, Clemson University bioengineering scientists and students help keep the feet of joint replacement patients on the ground.

The new facility, which opens this week, houses one of the country's largest stores of post-use total joint replacements: hip, knee and other artificial joints that were removed from patients, in some cases after 15 years or more of use.

John DesJardins, director of the Frank H. Stelling and C. Dayton Riddle Orthopaedic Education and Research Laboratory at the Clemson University Biomedical Engineering Innovation Campus, or CUBEInC, at Patewood, leads a program that analyzes these implant retrievals with the end game of improving the quality of life of patients.

DesJardins and his team study and catalogue how joint replacements have performed over the years, such as how different materials wear out during natural movements of the body.

Clemson's research is used by manufacturers to improve their products, which hopefully will lead to fewer repeat total-joint replacement procedures. Such advances help reduce medical costs and spare patients a return to what often is painful and invasive surgery.

"Essentially, we're trying to improve the entire procedure," DesJardins said. "We're trying to make these joints last longer and longer, because they're like highly engineered car tires they eventually will wear out."

Clemson's new 30,000-square-foot research facility at Patewood houses 10 laboratories, plus offices and conference areas. More than 100 faculty, staff and students will use the laboratories as Clemson adds another dimension to its bioengineering degree programs.

For example, DesJardins supervises 65 bioengineering students who are visiting the hospital campus as part of their senior year design projects. The students are working with clinician
