Mizzou researchers closing in on vaccine breakthrough

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.

Researchers embark on quest to find durable, cost-efficient soy-based material

Efforts to identify greener, more cost-efficient materials to make the polyurethanes used to create foams and plastics has resulted in an expanded use of soybeans and soybean oils. The United Soybean Board (USB) has jumped on the bandwagon, funding research projects across the country that develop the industrial use of soybeans. In particular, they have […]

Research synergy produces unique, exciting results

Within his successful National Science Foundation CAREER award proposal, Dmitry Korkin, a University of Missouri assistant professor of computer science, included his intent to apply his work in structural bioinformatics to the study of nematodes. His collaboration with molecular nematologist Melissa Mitchum, an MU associate professor of plant sciences, has been fruitful. The pair had […]

Capstone instructor’s class focuses on rounded design process

Each semester, University of Missouri electrical and computer engineering instructor Jim Fischer is responsible for both ECE 3110 and ECE 4970 courses, the department’s Projects and Senior Capstone Design classes. Both require students to utilize classroom concepts to conceptualize and build hands-on projects of their own devising — under Fischer’s watchful eye. “Basically, I serve […]

Working out the logistics of biomass as a viable energy resource

Biomass is one obvious answer to the question of how this country will address its needs for renewable, sustainable energy resources. But logistical questions and related financial considerations surrounding the initiation and operation of biomass supply and energy output facilities — location, production, harvest, storage and transport, to name a few — are less obvious. […]

Better dental bond means fewer trips to the dentist

Clinical trials are expected to begin early this summer on a technology that aims to make visits to the dentist easier and less frequent. Mechanical engineering Associate Professor Qingsong Yu said the plasma dental “brush” he and Hao Li, also an associate professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Missouri College of Engineering, have […]

Engineering-produced films open doors for students, gain widespread attention

In addition to the screenings at film festivals, films produced by the University of Missouri College of Engineering projects have created opportunities for students across campus to learn new skills and take those skills to bigger industries. When junior Ben Poland began information technology classes his freshman year, he thought he primarily would learn about […]
