Cheng Receives $1.37M NIH Grant to Predict Protein Structures

Cheng Receives $1.37M NIH Grant to Predict Protein Structures

Using artificial intelligence technologies, Thompson Professor Jianlin Cheng is devising a way to predict 3-dimensional protein structures. The method translates a protein sequence into a 2-dimensional map to predict the structure. Knowing the three-dimensional structure of proteins—such as the shape of the spike-like protein that injects coronavirus into our cells—can help us treat illnesses. That’s [...]

Tiger Paw Now Available for Purchase

Tiger Paw Hand Sanitizer, created by Mizzou Engineering in response to help fight the spread of COVID-19, is now available to MU departments for purchase and on-campus delivery. Mizzou Engineering collaborated with MU Extension to build a webpage to facilitate ordering the hand sanitizer. Print & Mail Services also collaborated with Mizzou Engineering to develop […]

Locally Made Shields Protect MU Health Care Workers

Locally Made Shields Protect MU Health Care Workers

In April, a volunteer group led by University of Missouri College of Engineering professor Kevin Gillis, DSc, met with MU Health Care leaders. The goal was to figure out the best ways to harness the talent of a cross-campus team of problem-solvers to make medical equipment to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. They decided the […]

A ‘Corny’ Solution to Help Fight the Spread of the Novel Coronavirus

  Inside the Mizzou Asphalt Pavement and Innovation Lab at the University of Missouri College of Engineering, Bill Buttlar normally leads a research team developing innovative ways to build better roads and stronger bridges. However, he’s recently converted his lab to also produce an ethanol-based hand sanitizer for use during the COVID-19 pandemic to help […]

Engineering Shop Finds Innovative Solutions to COVID-19 Issues

Engineering Shop Finds Innovative Solutions to COVID-19 Issues

During the COVID-19 outbreak, we have become accustomed to washing our hands frequently, sanitizing surfaces we come in contact with and wearing face masks to prevent the spread of the virus. Still, as the virus continues to spread and the prospect for a vaccine is likely months away, going to the grocery store or simply […]

Mizzou Engineers, Physicians to Help Rural Missouri Plan Ahead for Pandemic: Geospatial Big Data is Key

Mizzou Engineers, Physicians to Help Rural Missouri Plan Ahead for Pandemic: Geospatial Big Data is Key

This image from Professor Chi-Ren Shyu's work shows the distance between rural Missouri communities and nearest hospitals. Planning ahead for a pandemic—or any disaster situation—is costly and complex. Now, Mizzou researchers are hoping to take the guesswork out of it for Missouri’s smaller communities. The catalyst for the research is COVID-19. In spite of a [...]
Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

The secret to surviving COVID-19 could be locked in our DNA. Researchers are analyzing genome sequences to find clues about why some people are more susceptible to the virus. Right now, doing that work comes with a hefty price tag. But Praveen Rao is developing a way for more scientists to unlock that information for [...]

Flu researcher brings team together to tackle COVID-19

Henry Wan studies flu viruses and is now part of research tracking COVID-19. | Photo by Roger Meissen, Bond Life Sciences Center Professor Henry Wan has studied flu viruses for years, and he can assure you, coronavirus is not the same. It’s trickier. Less predictable And for many, deadlier. But there are insights scientists can [...]
In the Fight to Contain COVID-19, MU Makes its Own Testing Swabs

In the Fight to Contain COVID-19, MU Makes its Own Testing Swabs

The new 3D printers at the University of Missouri College of Engineering have been given colorful nicknames, ranging from the enticing PiquantPelican to the down-and-dirty FreshSlug. The nicknames are fitting, because the printers are cranking out a product that is highly coveted for an unpleasant task — coronavirus testing swabs. Demand exceeds supply for the […]
