The third Neuro Big-Data Symposium featured projects showcasing software and automation workflows built to improve research and training applications.
MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Prasad Calyam is the principal investigator on the two-year, $500,000 NSF award titled, “CC* Integration: End-to-End Performance and Security Driven Federated Data-Intensive Workflow Management.”
This past spring, faculty representatives from the College of Engineering developed a Faculty Honors Program to adhere to the campus guidelines for awarding faculty fellowships and honors.
Most approved research grants have a very limited focus, with funding going toward achieving a very specific goal and that goal only. The National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences wanted to turn that idea on its head by finding worthwhile bodies of research to fund.
The University of Missouri is already doing groundbreaking work in pairing Big Data experts with clinical and life science practitioners in order to produce cutting-edge results out of the wealth of data the latter groups create with their research. And a group of College of Engineering researchers is looking to expand collaborative efforts even further.
MU College of Engineering Professor Dong Xu (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) and Assistant Professor Bret Ulery (Chemical Engineering) partnered with immunologist Jeffery Adamovicz with the goal of finding a more rapid, cost-effective way of creating vaccines.
Dong Xu, James C. Dowell professor and chair of the Computer Science Department, and Yuwen Zhang, James C. Dowell professor and chair of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department were among 347 Fellows in this year’s class.
Two students who got a taste of computational scalability and the other benefits of involvement with SoyKB are Michael Fitzpatrick and Danny Franklin.
