ImpeDx, co-founded by Mizzou Engineering’s Shramik Sengupta, recently received a National Science Foundation (NSF) SBIR Phase II grant and CDC contract.
In the Department of Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering, our faculty and students work side by side every day on cutting-edge research with vital, real-world applications. Undergraduates have the opportunity to get involved with research as early as their freshman year. Our graduate students have developed skills through research projects that lead to careers in academia, start-up companies, and leading organizations including Amazon, Google, PepsiCo, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Below are just a few projects our outstanding faculty and students are currently working on.
- Soft materials and wearable/implantable bioelectronics and biosensors (Zhang)
- Skin-interfaced bioelectronics and biosensors
- Brain-interfaced microsystem
- Soft materials-complex colloidal systems
- Biological Optics (Yao)
- Optical Polarization Tractography
- Pupillary Light Reflex
- Sustainability science (Hall)
- Sustainable Cities
- Integrating stakeholder knowledge in water resources planning
- Developing meaningful models of social-ecological systems
- Materials for adsorption, transport, separations, catalysis, and other energy-related applications (Hammond)
- Plasma-facing materials
- Nuclear materials
- Zeolites and similar porous and catalytic materials
