Most elements can only have their therapeutic radioisotopes separated with use of a very powerful electromagnet. And Mizzou Engineering’s John Gahl just received funding to set up and operate one.
The Mizzou team of researchers utilized non-contact hydraulic bed sensors to estimate relative systolic blood pressure — the top number in a typical blood pressure reading — by extracting features from the ballistocardiogram (BCG) signal.
MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Prasad Calyam is the principal investigator on the two-year, $500,000 NSF award titled, “CC* Integration: End-to-End Performance and Security Driven Federated Data-Intensive Workflow Management.”
The goal of the program is to bring engineers and clinicians together to develop novel solutions to pressing medical needs. As such, the three projects funded this year — a total of $302,000 — include faculty members from Mizzou Engineering and the School of Medicine.
The MU College of Engineering is rolling out a brand new online master’s degree program in Biological Engineering, with courses starting in Fall 2019.
University of Missouri Chancellor Alexander Cartwright appointed MU Engineering Dean Elizabeth Loboa as the vice chancellor for Strategic Partnerships during his campus address on Wednesday.
Recent University of Missouri research sponsored by the National Science Foundation titled “A Networked Virtual Reality Platform for Immersive Online Social Learning of Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders” (NSF CNS-1647213) has been focused on understanding the benefits in the use of virtual reality to aid the special education of students with autism.
In June, the College of Engineering played host to the third edition of its National Institutes of Health Brain Initiative Summer Course on Models and Neurobiology, attracting 24 attendees from across the country for a two-week, intensive course on utilizing computer modeling in neurobiology research.
EECS Professor Giovanna Guidoboni’s most recent breakthrough came when their theoretical predictions in the realm of glaucoma were confirmed by a population-based study of nearly 10,000 subjects.
MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Jianlin Cheng and Professor Amarda Shehu of George Mason University recently landed a three-year, $845,283 grant from the National Science Foundation to support their project, “Guiding Exploration of Protein Structure Spaces with Deep Learning.”
