Nearing a new generation of pain management

Treatment of chronic pain, diabetes, nerve damage and many other debilitating diseases that affect millions globally would benefit from medicine and pain management methods targeting the source of the pain. And an interdisciplinary team, including Mizzou Engineering’s Yi Zhang, is one step closer to making such a breakthrough a reality.


Army Ants wrap up an incredible year of FIRST Robotics

Army Ants, Columbia’s FIRST Robotics team, recently wrapped a tremendous academic year. The organization includes nearly 40 students from Columbia Public Schools alongside several adult mentors. That’s where Mizzou Engineering comes in. Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering Professor Kevin Gillis has been a mentor for the organization since its foundation in 2011, including spending several years as its chief mentor.
