Engineering a multi-modal probe to detect neural, chemical, optical signals

A Mizzou Engineer and collaborators are developing a new type of neural probe that can improve basic understanding of brain circuits and ultimately lead to better treatments for neurological diseases. The novelty of the probe is in its multi-model sensing, said Yi Wang, an assistant professor of industrial and systems engineering. He is working on the project with researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The team recently received a three-year grant from the National Science Foundation.

From hydrogen to health care: Zeng developing next-generation sensors based on naturally occurring phenomenon

Every day, billions of natural reactions happen all around us. Reactions in our bodies that enable us to function. Reactions in the air that form clouds. But the potential for harnessing these naturally occurring phenomenon for technological advancement has remained largely untapped. That’s where Xiangqun Zeng comes in. A professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering as well as chemistry, Zeng joined Mizzou last year, bringing with her insatiable curiosity and an impressive portfolio of sponsored research.
