In Search of a Better Cancer Treatment

In Search of a Better Cancer Treatment

The American Cancer Society reports that approximately 25,000 people will die from leukemia this year. Patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are difficult to treat and have poor prognostic outlooks, despite advances in treatments. ALL also is the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in children. Bret Ulery, an assistant professor in the Department of […]

Wearable AC

Wearable AC

One day, soldiers could cool down on the military battlefield — preventing heat stroke or exhaustion — by using “wearable air conditioning,” an on-skin device designed by engineers at the University of Missouri. The device includes numerous human health care applications such as the ability to monitor blood pressure, electrical activity of the heart and […]

As required by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act signed by President Obama in 2012, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) was tasked with updating the National Bridge Inspection Standards […]

Research has Implications for Aging, Arthritis and Osteoporosis

Research has Implications for Aging, Arthritis and Osteoporosis

It is well-known that a lack of physical activity can cause bone loss or fractures in elderly people, bedridden patients or even sedentary youth. That’s because bone mass is regulated, in part, by mechanical stimuli. Similar to muscles, bones add mass when they are mechanically loaded via physical activity but will lose mass if immobilized […]
