MSI is sorry to note that MSI Principal Investigator Barney Klamecki, a professor in the mechanical engineering department, passed away on December 5 at the age of 74. Professor Klamecki, an expert in manufacturing processes, has been using MSI resources for computer modeling of arteries as part of a study to determine how arterial tissue structure and properties change during angioplasty and atherectomy. This research provides insight into better designs for medical devices and improved treatments.
An obituary of Professor Klamecki appears on the Department of Mechanical Engineering website.
MSI staff extend their deepest condolences to Professor Klamecki’s family, friends, and colleagues.
