February and represents the latest
collaboration between the Uni-
versity and GM.
Through ABCD, which is sup-
ported by the United States De-
partment of Energy and the state
of Michigan, about 50 GM re-
searchers and 80 University grad-
uate students have been working
to extend battery life and solve
Dennis Assanis, co-director
of Engine Systems Research at the
GM/UM Collaborative Research
Laboratory and an Engineering
professor, said that after work-
ing with GM for nearly ten years,
the institute "is like a dream come
Assanis and a group of gradu-
ate students have been studying
homogenous charged compres-
sion ignition, which results in low
exhaust emissions and improved
fuel efficiency and can be applied
in plug-in hybrid and electric ve-
"We truly feel that combined
with other technologies the HCCI
can give us a 15-percent improve-
ment in fuel economy over today's
(standard) engine," Assanis said.

was a health hazard to the public.
She said the company pulled
its original plans earlier last week,
instead proposing a new plan that
would keep the existing front fa-
gade of the original building but
knock out the rest of what's behind
it. As of last Thursday, the company
had not resubmitted the plan.
Thacher added that the HDC
would be more likely to pass the
revised plan because it would keep
the front fagade and restore the
building's original windows. A sim-
ilar plan was passed by the HDC
back in 2007, but the construction
company never followed through
with the plan.
Although the development
plan would force owner SavaLelcaj
to move her restaurant elsewhere,
she said it was good timing.
Lelcaj, who opened her cafe in
June 2007, said she's recently been
looking for a new place to relocate
because her business has gotten
too big for 211 State Street.
"I'm looking at a couple differ-
ent locations right now," she said.
"I definitely want to try and stay on

Mark Hoffman, an Engineer-
ing graduate student, has worked
with Assanis the past five years
researching HCCI and the for-
mation of combustion chamber
Hoffman said it's an exciting
time for Engineers in the market
because the government is push-
ing Engineers to develop higher
"We now have an opportunity
where everyone is coming and
asking 'What can you give us?"'
With the state of the economy,
Hoffman added that for engineers,
"to be in demand is a big plus."
Hoffman said if GM offered
him a job after graduation, he
wouldn't turn it down.
Currently, GM employs more
than 2,000 University graduates
and has funded about100 research
projects over the past nine years.
While the University has
collaborated with GM for more
than 50 years on various projects,
Munson said he expects great au-
tomotive innovations will spawn
from the new institute.
"We look forward to the
breakthroughs we expect to
achieve in the academic and com-
mercial successes that will result,"
she's interested in.
Lelcaj also said that she
thought a CVS in her current loca-
tion would bring more to the com-
munity than just medication and
"I really think we're in need of
a CVS," she said. "I think it would
bring the Main Street locals on to
State Street and blend our city."
Michael Kaplan, a 2009 gradu-
ate from the College of Literature,
Science and the Arts, said thatcafter
attending the University for four
years, he thinks there is a big de-
mand for a second pharmacy near
"While the Village Apothecary
is nice, I feel like you need more
competition," he said. "It would
make the prices go down. You need
Ahmad Faik, also a 2009 LSA
graduate, agreed that there should
be another pharmacy downtown
but that it should be a small busi-
ness, not a corporate pharmacy.
"I think it should be a family-
owned pharmacy, he said. "I feel
like the CVS would take away from
other businesses around here."
The next deadline for the com-
pany to submit its plan to the HDC
is May 18 and it would be reviewed
by the committee on June 8. The
public hearing on the proposal
would be on June11.
