The gift from College of Engineering alumnus Jim Fitterling is one of the first major gifts from an individual donor for the NextGen Precision Health Institute, the capital priority for Mizzou.
Mizzou Engineering faculty will help create a computational hub to both store and process large sets of data for both NextGen and additional collaborative research projects across the UM System.
MU receives nearly $4 million from National Institutes of Health to commercialize biomedical discoveries
NIH awarded MU nearly $4 million to lead a consortium of Midwestern universities to collaborate on turning biomedical discoveries into marketable products.
Fifth-year Biomedical, Biological & Chemical Engineering doctoral candidate Janae Bradley recently earned the 2019 Dr. Donald M. Suggs Dissertation Support Fellowship.
Mizzou Engineering Professor Jianlin Cheng is one of the best in the world at using AI to improve healthcare outcomes according to Deep Knowledge Analytics (DKA).
What do you do when there’s no textbook that fits the exact, unique nature of your course of study and research? You write your own. Giovanna Guidoboni, MU professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and professor of Mathematics, did just that. She and her colleagues — Riccardo Sacco and Aurelio Giancarlo Mauri from the […]
