ISRC

Industrial and Scientific Research Center

Mission:
The Industrial and Scientific Research Center (ISRC) is one of the latest collaborations between the Department of STEM Education and Professional Studies and the ODU Business Gateway. Under the leadership of Dr. Katsioloudis the mission of the center is to offer real world industrial and scientific research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Examples include research with EVMS to study several medical technology issues: a) research related to the production of surgical smoke by various instruments during operations, and to analyze the content of the smoke to determine what health risks this may pose to surgeons b) the safety of hysterosalpingography (HSG) testing in patients with tubal ligations.

Under Katsioloudis' guidance, 30 students, whose majors include industrial technology, technology education and engineering technology, fabricated a surgical smoke box to capture and analyze surgery fumes for the first experiment, and designed a test procedure and an apparatus that would attach to the dye syringe and HSG balloon catheter for the second experiment.
