Mizzou Engineer Part of Team Working to Restore Organ Function

A Mizzou Engineer is part of an interdisciplinary team from across the country selected to study the lower urinary tract in hopes of restoring bladder function to those who suffer from urinary incontinence. About 50% of women and 25% of men suffer from bladder dysfunction. Giovanna Guidoboni, a professor in electrical engineering and computer science [...]
Mizzou Engineering Hosts Virtual AIPR Conference

Mizzou Engineering Hosts Virtual AIPR Conference

EECS faculty members Prasad Calyam andKannappan Palaniappan co-hosted this year's AIRP Conference, using the new IDE Lab on campus. The event has historically been held at the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C., pictured on the monitor. Mizzou Engineering hosted the 49th annual Applied Imagery Pattern Recognition (AIPR) conference last week, proving that a virtual event [...]
Gargees on Mission to Boost Number of Women in Computer Science

Gargees on Mission to Boost Number of Women in Computer Science

Gargees Computer science is rapidly growing as technology becomes more pervasive in our homes and lives. However, the number of women in computer science programs in the U.S. has dropped since 2000. Mizzou Engineering’s Rasha Gargees is on a mission to change that. Gargees was selected this year to participate in the University of Missouri’s [...]
Mizzou Engineers Help RJI Develop JSafe App

Mizzou Engineers Help RJI Develop JSafe App

The JSafe app will allow female journalists to better document and store incidents of harassment. Computer Science students have developed an app to help female journalists document harassment. The JSafe app lets reporters store incident reports in a secure, cloud-based system. The app is a partnership between Mizzou Engineering, MU’s Reynolds Journalism Institute and the [...]
Team Devising Way to Analyze Images from Drone Footage

Team Devising Way to Analyze Images from Drone Footage

This photo illustration shows how a drone captures aerial video of a farm. A Mizzou research team is devising a way to pull high-resolution images from that video footage automatically. Imagine being able to assess the health of a single plant in the middle of a field by automatically analyzing a photo of it. The [...]
Cheng Receives $1.37M NIH Grant to Predict Protein Structures

Cheng Receives $1.37M NIH Grant to Predict Protein Structures

Using artificial intelligence technologies, Thompson Professor Jianlin Cheng is devising a way to predict 3-dimensional protein structures. The method translates a protein sequence into a 2-dimensional map to predict the structure. Knowing the three-dimensional structure of proteins—such as the shape of the spike-like protein that injects coronavirus into our cells—can help us treat illnesses. That’s [...]
Mizzou Engineering Team Develops New Model to Predict Algae Growth

Mizzou Engineering Team Develops New Model to Predict Algae Growth

Researchers hope to predict and promote algae growth at wastewater treatment plants such as this one to purify water sources. Two Mizzou Engineering departments have teamed up to develop a new computer model that will predict algae growth. The research has the potential to increase algae production—and that could lead to cleaner water supplies. Students [...]
Mizzou Cyber Range to Focus on Cyber Pretense Strategies

Mizzou Cyber Range to Focus on Cyber Pretense Strategies

Hackers are getting smarter about ways to steal sensitive information from the cloud. Now, a new “Mizzou Cyber Range” will train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals to fight back using cyber pretense strategies. Armed with new grant funding from the National Security Agency, Prasad Calyam and his team are building the Mizzou Cyber Range [...]
