Dr. James Eliason, 63, CEO of MitoStem and Director of the Great Lakes Stem Cell Innovation Center, views slides stained with antibodies for proteins in cells at their TechTown office in Detroit, Friday, April 15, 2011. For over a month, Detroit has been reeling from new census numbers that showed the city lost more population in the last 10 years than anyone realized _ 230,000 or about 25 percent. More troubling is the outlook for the city’s next 10 years. Rather than a rebound, which community leaders are publicly talking up, demographers are projecting losses of another 100,000 to 200,000 people, leaving the city somewhere between Tucson, Ariz., and Memphis in size:- 500,000-plus, only without much of a middle class. The hope for more technology jobs depends on projects like TechTown at Wayne State University, which is incubating small businesses. less
