Mizzou Engineering has been awarded a third prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site, this one with a creative twist. Principal investigator Heather Hunt, associate professor of Bioengineering; co-principal investigator Mahmoud Almasri, associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and the materials-focused faculty in MU’s College of Engineering found out […]
Dan Batliner earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Mizzou in 1992, then spent the bulk of his career as a consultant in the water treatment industry. When an opportunity arose to become the co-owner of his own ethanol production plant, he took it. Actually, “ethanol production plant” isn’t 100 percent accurate. Much of […]
Understanding ribonucleic acid (RNA) and its chemical properties and biological mechanisms is a key area of focus in health research. RNA is critical in the processing and movement of genetic information and gene expression. The way RNA folds into various tertiary structures determines its biological function, and being able to dissect and alter that process […]
University of Missouri researchers recently received a patent on a method of joint repair that will be beneficial to the health of patients’ joints.
