Now, thanks to a new grant from the National Institutes of Health, members of the Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology will investigate tailoring the system to alert the patients themselves or family members, providing actionable data that’s easy for non-health professionals to use.
The list of fellows of the American Physical Society reads like a who’s who of the physics world from the 20th Century to the present day. Mark Prelas, professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, was elected in the most recent group of fellows of the APS.
Using a combination of optimization models and data analytics techniques, the researchers identified the relationship between production planning decisions and food waste and unsatisfied customer demands.
We all carry thousands of genes in our genome and have millions of unique genetic pairs. On the surface, trying to narrow down which genes and/or genetic pairs cause a neurodevelopmental disorder such as autism can seem like a “needle in a haystack” endeavor. By using big data analytics, a University of Missouri research team […]
Yi Shang has worked for years on perfecting a customizable mobile survey app to allow researchers to pair specific survey questions with data collected from wearable technology to unlock new methods of data collection. Now, his work will help break new ground in alcohol-impaired driving research. Shang, a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science […]
Understanding ribonucleic acid (RNA) and its chemical properties and biological mechanisms is a key area of focus in health research. RNA is critical in the processing and movement of genetic information and gene expression. The way RNA folds into various tertiary structures determines its biological function, and being able to dissect and alter that process […]
University of Missouri researchers recently received a patent on a method of joint repair that will be beneficial to the health of patients’ joints. Ferris Pfeiffer, assistant professor of bioengineering and orthopaedic surgery; Aaron M. Stoker, associate research professor of orthopaedic surgery; and James L. Cook, professor of orthopaedic surgery, received the patent for their […]
Being chosen to chair an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference of any kind is both a great honor and massive undertaking, one entrusted only to the most prolific researchers in the field. Mizzou Engineering’s Chi-Ren Shyu is set to chair two in the span of a calendar year. Shyu, Paul K. […]
The LEXO travel mug was initially released last year and became so popular that ThermAvant had trouble keeping it in stock. This year, the company — founded by C.W. LaPierre Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Bill Ma — has made the popular mug even better.
Jung Hyup Kim recently developed a method of better tracking how nurses in a fast-paced intensive care unit (ICU) spend their workday.
