Mizzou Engineers, Physicians to Help Rural Missouri Plan Ahead for Pandemic: Geospatial Big Data is Key

This image from Professor Chi-Ren Shyu's work shows the distance between rural Missouri communities and nearest hospitals. Planning ahead for a pandemic—or any disaster situation—is costly and complex. Now, Mizzou researchers are hoping to take the guesswork out of it for Missouri’s smaller communities. The catalyst for the research is COVID-19. In spite of a [...]
Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

The secret to surviving COVID-19 could be locked in our DNA. Researchers are analyzing genome sequences to find clues about why some people are more susceptible to the virus. Right now, doing that work comes with a hefty price tag. But Praveen Rao is developing a way for more scientists to unlock that information for [...]

Flu researcher brings team together to tackle COVID-19

Henry Wan studies flu viruses and is now part of research tracking COVID-19. | Photo by Roger Meissen, Bond Life Sciences Center Professor Henry Wan has studied flu viruses for years, and he can assure you, coronavirus is not the same. It’s trickier. Less predictable And for many, deadlier. But there are insights scientists can [...]
In the Fight to Contain COVID-19, MU Makes its Own Testing Swabs

In the Fight to Contain COVID-19, MU Makes its Own Testing Swabs

The new 3D printers at the University of Missouri College of Engineering have been given colorful nicknames, ranging from the enticing PiquantPelican to the down-and-dirty FreshSlug. The nicknames are fitting, because the printers are cranking out a product that is highly coveted for an unpleasant task — coronavirus testing swabs. Demand exceeds supply for the […]

A new website developed by Mizzou Engineers provides reliable information about COVID-19. Looking for reliable information about COVID-19? Want to access articles quickly without having to sort through hundreds of journal articles? You’re in luck. Graduate students at Mizzou Engineering have developed a tool to help you sift through resources fast. KnowCOVID-19 is a website [...]
Local Makers Group Designs Proning Bed for COVID Patients

Local Makers Group Designs Proning Bed for COVID Patients

Health care workers know that turning ventilated patients onto their stomachs, a procedure known as proning, helps the patients by opening their lungs. As the COVID-19 outbreak began to spread in Missouri, MU Health Care officials reached out the Hacking COVID-19 Task Force to see if someone could design a device to facilitate the proning […]

MU Partners with Community to Produce Face Shields

The MU College of Engineering is working with the Columbia STEM Alliance, Columbia Public Schools, the Columbia Police Department, Boone County and the MU-COVID-19 Task Force to manufacture face shields for first responders and health care workers at no cost. Bill Moore, BS ’77, MS ’85 CiE, the board president of the Columbia STEM Alliance, […]

MU’s Hacking COVID-19 Task Force Creates Equipment to Protect Health Care Workers

MU’s Hacking COVID-19 Task Force Creates Equipment to Protect Health Care Workers

Kevin Gillis heard stories about hospitals that were overwhelmed by the COVID-19 outbreak and unable to get enough equipment to protect their front-line health care workers. He wanted to do something to prevent that from happening in mid-Missouri. And as the interim chair of the University of Missouri’s Department of Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering, […]

Feeling anxiety? Reverse-engineering the brain could help

Feeling anxiety? Reverse-engineering the brain could help

A model shows the complexity of circuits inside the human brain. Reverse-engineering the brain could lead to major medical breakthroughs. The anxiety you may be feeling right now in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic stems back to our prehistoric need to survive. Biologists have explored this principle for decades. Those breathing techniques that your [...]
