Timely research for on-time trains

Missouri’s first railroad, constructed between 1849 and 1851, consisted of five miles of ties and rails, both hewn from oak. The train that traveled the timber rails relied on horse power and was more of a stagecoach than a train. Today, the St. Louis and Kansas City rail hubs are the second and third largest […]

Uncovering hidden mechanisms in Alzheimer’s disease

“Alzheimer’s is a very complex disease,” observed James Lee, a University of Missouri biological engineering assistant professor, reflecting on the research he is conducting on a form of dementia that has robbed an estimated 26.6 million people worldwide of the spark of mental acuity responsible for their personal identities. Breakthrough findings from an initial National […]

The Pacific Ring: Sustaining quality of life in the face of economic progress

The Nondestructive Evaluator

Reinforced concrete, first invented in the mid-nineteenth century, combines the bendable strength of steel with the compressional strength of concrete. Wedded together, the pair offers a perfect bridge-building material that will support both its own weight and the weight of the traffic that travels from one end of its span to the other. Enter the […]
