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 […]
A research experiment by a Mizzou Engineering team in a zero-gravity environment could lead to the development of an efficient method of harvesting water in space. With funding from NASA, the project aims to contribute to future missions to Mars and beyond and for the crew members on the International Space Station (ISS). From William […]
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 […]
You encounter them almost every time you get in your vehicle to travel someplace—drivers with one hand on the wheel and one hand on their cell phone. If you are lucky, those distracted drivers won’t involve you in an accident. Last year in Missouri, more than 21,000 motor vehicle crashes involved distracted drivers, either due […]
The University of Missouri is unique in terms of collaborative research, with engineering, medicine and veterinary medicine schools in one location—something only 10 universities in the country can claim on a single campus. The combination of these resources — as well as those provided by schools such as law, journalism, business, and arts and science—positions […]
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.
