Addressing the national opioid crisis

Opioid overdoses kill more than 60,000 Americans each year — more than breast cancer, more than car accidents. The CDC projects the final 2017 death toll will be even higher. In parallel with governmental and community-based approaches to decrease the availability of opioids — drugs such as oxycodone and fentanyl — biomedical engineers at Purdue are devising ways to prevent overdose deaths. As well as leveraging their expertise in biomedical devices and novel drug delivery systems, Purdue’s Weldon School engineers hope to create a multidisciplinary core of researchers who can present a comprehensive set of solutions for Indiana and the nation.
