The formation of the Automotive Safety Group (ASG) at Wayne State University on Feb. 26, 2013 evolved from a long tradition of research initiated in 1939 when Professor Lissner and Dr. Gurdjian started their modern day injury bio-mechanics research.  This interdisciplinary team consists of members from Wayne State's College of Engineering, College of Liberal Arts and Science, School of Medicine, and College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences all working toward the common goal of saving lives.       


Through integration of interdisciplinary research, ASG aims to develop ideas that will:

  • lead to gross reduction of automotive-related crashes. 
  • keep the risk of injury to a minimum if a crash cannot be avoided.
