The Institute of Biological Engineering’s Annual Meeting in Norfolk, Va., could easily be described as a “Heather Hunt Production.” And for her efforts, the IBE gave her its 2018 Presidential Citation Award, one of its three biggest accolades.
Posters covering a wide array research topics and more filled a large room near the College’s library in the late afternoon, followed by four brief TED-style talks on subjects related to each of Mizzou Engineering’s four Pillars of Pursuit.
Marge Skubic’s extensive and groundbreaking work in the field of eldercare and rehabilitation technology has earned several honors over the years. The latest comes from the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.
Muhammad Salim, alongside Assistant Professor of Bioengineering Ferris Pfeiffer and recent MU Engineering graduate Lia Howe, published an abstract titled “Computational Modeling of Stress Relation in Articular Cartilage,” and Salim presented the accompanying poster at this year’s ORS Annual Meeting in March.
Tucker is ready to put his best foot forward. With the help of the College of Engineering’s 3D Printing Club, Kendra Earl Warlow’s 5-year-old Australian Shepherd will soon walk on four paws. Born without his hind right foot, Tucker has adapted throughout his life to travel on just three. However, with age, he’s begun to […]
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurses have plenty on their plate on a daily basis. A Mizzou Engineering researcher is part of a team working on a new device that could help lessen their load. Roger Fales, associate professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, is partnering with Ramak Amjad and John Pardalos of MU’s Department […]
Sheila Grant’s extensive work in the areas of sensors and biomaterials has led to the formation of companies, cutting-edge research breakthroughs, patents and more. And all of that success has led to yet another world-class accolade. Grant, professor of Bioengineering and the College of Engineering’s associate dean of research, recently was selected as a National […]
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 […]
