MU Engineer developing sensor to improve bacteria detection in poultry

Detecting bacterial pathogens is critical for the poultry slaughtering plants and processing facilities that sell your chicken and turkey. And the quicker and more effective the test, the better it is both for consumers and those companies’ bottom lines. An interdisciplinary team of Mizzou and Lincoln University (Mo.) researchers has been perfecting an easy-to-use, portable sensor for years to solve this very issue.

Quick eyes can show level of situational awareness, MU study shows

Oil refinery safety technicians, air traffic controllers, security guards, TSA agents, nuclear power plant safety techs — these jobs and more are key to our safety. And all require the ability to monitor loads of information and adjust to any abnormal signals, which makes understanding their awareness and effectiveness in real time critical to public safety. Mizzou Engineering’s Jung Hyup Kim just discovered a way to do just that.

Trio of federally-funded programs showcase computational neuroscience

If you’re looking for a holistic approach to neuroscience research and education, the University of Missouri is the place to be each summer thanks to three federally funded, interdisciplinary programs. Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Professor Satish Nair leads an interdisciplinary team of faculty and grad students who put on two programs funded by the National Science Foundation and another by the National Institutes of Health.

NSF REU puts students at computing’s cutting edge

Mizzou Engineering is proud of its tradition of giving undergraduates real-world lab experience through undergraduate research. In fact, Mizzou is listed as one of the top 10 universities in the country for undergraduate research. And, each summer, MU and Mizzou Engineering extend that tradition to students from across the country through the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.

Studying chromosomes: Mizzou Engineering develops 3D modeling tool

Science has already allowed us to map the human genome – one of the biggest scientific achievements of our lifetimes. But to really take that achievement to the next level and use it to improve precision health and medicine, we need accurate 3D models to study chromosomes in great detail. A Mizzou Engineering researcher and his team have designed a tool to do just that.

MU showcases nuclear strengths by hosting key stakeholder meeting

Whenever some of the top minds in any given industry gather in a specific location, that place typically has some level of importance to the industry. That’s why playing host to the U.S. High Performance Research Reactor (USHPRR) Stakeholder Meeting is such a big deal for Mizzou and the MU College of Engineering.
