Mizzou establishes commercialization hub with NSF award, $5.5 million agreement
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has selected MU as one of 18 U.S. academic institutions to receive an Accelerating Research Translation award. This award will be used to set up a Technology, Entrepreneurship and Commercialization Hub, supported by a four-year, $5.5 million cooperative agreement with the NSF.
AI software can predict ‘roadmap’ for protein location, biological discoveries
Recently, Dong Xu, Curators' Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Missouri, and colleagues updated their protein localization prediction model, MULocDeep, with the ability to provide more targeted predictions, including specific models for animals, humans and plants.
Mizzou Engineering students take honors at Show Me Research Week
Six engineering students took honors at Show Me Research Week on campus last week. Show Me Research Week, a collaboration between the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Bond Life Sciences Center, included poster presentations, guest lectures and special activities. More than 55 engineering students presented.
Using AI to analyze large amounts of biological data
Researchers at the University of Missouri are applying a form of artificial intelligence (AI) — previously used to analyze how National Basketball Association (NBA) players move their bodies — to now help scientists develop new drug therapies for medical treatments targeting cancers and other diseases.
Engineer uses advanced deep learning to predict where proteins will localize within cells
A Mizzou Engineer is developing computational tools that can be used to predict where proteins will localize within a cell. Using highly advanced deep learning, the resource could help researchers better understand how proteins function or, if positioned incorrectly within a cell, misfire and cause problems.
Xu named Curators’ Distinguished Professor
Mizzou Engineering’s Dong Xu has been named a Curators’ Distinguished Professor, the highest recognition bestowed by the University of Missouri System.
