Team develops new method to detect cardiovascular dysfunctions
A Mizzou research team has developed a way to better identify cardiovascular dysfunctions through non-invasive sensors that translate signals from the body into information physicians can use to inform treatment decisions.
Army Ants Robotics Team Secures Spot in International Finals
Columbia’s FIRST® Robotics Competition team is one of just 20 teams worldwide, and the only team in the entire Midwest, to be selected as a finalist for the FIRST Global Innovation Awards.
Improving health by improving water filtration
A research team led by Mizzou Engineers recently published an article on how to potentially remove arsenic from ground water more efficiently with less expense for household use.
Research has Implications for Aging, Arthritis and Osteoporosis
Similar to muscles, bones add mass when they are mechanically loaded via physical activity but will lose mass if immobilized or when a person spends time at low or zero gravity, such as an astronaut. New research from Mizzou Engineers finds that similar processes occur with cartilage.
Mizzou Engineering’s Bradley earns esteemed graduate fellowship
Fifth-year Biomedical, Biological & Chemical Engineering doctoral candidate Janae Bradley recently earned the 2019 Dr. Donald M. Suggs Dissertation Support Fellowship.
MU’s Guidoboni pens unique, interdisciplinary textbook
What do you do when there’s no textbook that fits the exact, unique nature of your course of study and research? You write your own. And Giovanna Guidoboni, MU professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and professor of Mathematics, did just that.
Award-winning Mizzou research seeks to detect apnea effects
A novel sensor prototype designed to noninvasively detect sleep apnea in infants recently earned a pair of Mizzou Electrical Engineering & Computer Science graduate students a couple of major accolades from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Mizzou Engineering’s Kannan earns major award from UM System
Recently, the UM System announced the winners of its 2019 President’s Awards, which are given by President Mun Choi in recognition of faculty who have done exceptional work to advance the mission of the System.

Panacea’s Cloud ready for prime time
Real-time data and information sharing is critical for first responders, especially in situations that don’t allow for ready-made internet access. And after years of research supported by the Coulter Translational Partnership (TP) Program and the National Science Foundation, coupled with a recent market research, an interdisciplinary Mizzou team has the solution.
Nearing a new generation of pain management
Treatment of chronic pain, diabetes, nerve damage and many other debilitating diseases that affect millions globally would benefit from medicine and pain management methods targeting the source of the pain. And an interdisciplinary team, including Mizzou Engineering’s Yi Zhang, is one step closer to making such a breakthrough a reality.
