The two published papers collectively show that three common textile creation methods can produce effective scaffolds that retain biomimetic behavior, allowing for mechanical properties that closely mirror native tissue.
Jian Lin, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and his research team recently published a paper called “Laser induced MoS2 /carbon hybrids for hydrogen evolution catalysts” in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A.
Many engineering problems exist across scales. The problem, Chanwoo Park says, is that engineers are typically trained in only one scale, which can be anywhere from large, tangible systems, down to the microbes or even the atomic scale.
Got cavities? In the near future, a product developed by a University of Missouri (MU) mechanical engineering professor and his company may be what your dentist uses to fill them.
What cemented Zach Thacker’s decision to pursue graduate school was the research he conducted. He first worked on some nuclear engineering projects, then got involved with the nanoantenna project. Thacker called the work for that project the moment “when he knew he loved grad school.”
Matt Maschmann, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, recently was awarded a $5,000 Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award from the Oak Ridge National Lab to look into potential mechanical and electrical responses of carbon nanotubes grown directly on structural microfibers.
Researchers working in the College of Engineering and the School of Medicine are finding ways for gold nanoparticles to combine with pulsed power to combat brain cancer.
A workshop hosted by the Center for Advanced Nuclear Technology and Micro Integrated Systems focused on some of the smallest technologies and the big impact they can have.
Five faculty members from the University of Technology-Baghdad visited MU for three weeks in December as part of the college’s participation in the Iraqi University Linkage Program.
In June 2011, the University of Missouri learned its proposal to work with the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation through its Transitional Partnership Award Program was approved. The accompanying five-year grant agreement provided MU with $5 million, funding intended to serve as a bridge between biomedical research innovations on the MU campus and their introductions into […]
