Panacea’s Cloud is a collaboration between MU researchers Prasad Calyam, assistant professor of computer science, and Sal Ahmad, assistant professor of surgery and medical director of the Trauma and Surgical Intensive Care Unit. Its purpose is to utilize Google Glass and Recon Jet smart eyewear to allow first responders to relay real-time information to medical directors to allow for informed, systematic care in disaster situations where communication systems may otherwise be compromised.
Raghuraman Kannan has combined his background in chemistry, joint appointments in bioengineering and radiology, entrepreneurial roots, collaborative spirit and tireless energy into promising research for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Raghuraman Kannan was very close to his to his cousin Jegan, a chemist who ran his own lab in India. When the younger man […]
James Lee has spent the better part of a decade applying that training to help understand the effects or bring about the end of Alzheimer’s disease. And he recently received a $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to further his research between now and 2019.
With help from a $1.5 million grant from the NIH, Bioengineering Department Associate Professor James Lee will continue to look for clues into the causes of Alzheimer’s.
Researchers working in the College of Engineering and the School of Medicine are finding ways for gold nanoparticles to combine with pulsed power to combat brain cancer.
Modified vascular tissue patches developed in a bioengineering lab at Mizzou and implanted into pigs showed better integration than existing commercially available biological patches. The results have potential to improve such material currently being used in human surgical procedures.
A team of researchers aims to create an easily inserted and withdrawn device to block any debris from reaching the brain during aortic valve replacement surgery.
During her visit to MU, a presenter for the Chancellor’s Distinguished Visitors Series last September, Patricia Brennan, spent some time with the College of Engineering’s industrial and manufacturing systems engineering faculty members discussing the natural pairing of their professional field with nursing.
