Elizabeth Friis
Elizabeth Friis, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering of University of Kansas Elizabeth "Lisa" Friis' entrepreneurial work and research is both academic and industry based. As an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas, Dr Friis is committed to creating a multi-disciplinary approach to biomedical product development, as well as providing a robust entrepreneurial grounding to her students. At KU, Lisa's interest in the practical application of biomechanical technology led her to develop and offer her students a multi-disciplinary Biomedical Product Development course, as well as the associated university-wide KU Entrepreneurship Thematic Learning Community program. Dr. Friis is also a partner in the Sunflower Biotechnology Group, LLC, a start-up committed to bringing new biotech products to market from the university research setting. Lisa works closely with the KU Tech Transfer group, and NIH SBIR awards have supported her research. Lisa came to KU from Wichita-based Orthopedic Research Institute Inc., where she worked as a research scientist. At ORI, Lisa did applied research in orthopedics. She worked with attending orthopedists and residents, and taught biomechanics and biomaterials principles to orthopedic surgery residents. During her tenure at ORI, Lisa also co-authored a book on orthopedic biomechanics and biomaterials with two colleagues. Dr. Friis' research has been widely published in national and international peer-reviewed journals and other publications. Prior to joining ORI, Lisa did her graduate research in biomedical engineering at the University of Iowa. Lisa holds a BS in Biomedical Engineering and a MS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Iowa, and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Wichita State University.

KU researchers engineer synthetic spinal tissue to aid surgery on discs

www.kuconnection.org [cached]

The scientists -- Elizabeth Friis, KU assistant professor of mechanical engineering, and Doug Pence, clinical associate professor of surgery at the KU School of Medicine in Wichita -- are collaborating with Pacific Research Laboratories, a Seattle company that makes synthetic bones.
Elizabeth Friis, KU assistant professor of mechanical engineering "What we're doing is putting together our soft tissue with their bones to form a mechanical version of a lumbar spine segment," said Friis. Friis is applying to the National Institutes of Health and private foundations for funding. With funding, she said, the artificial spine could be ready in two years or less. The artificial spine will be useful in the future when spinal surgeons do disc implants. Such surgery is in clinical trials in the United States, Friis said. "A lot of types of implants are being designed but not tested sufficiently," she said.
