Mizzou becomes part of Center to Stream Healthcare in Place, an NSF consortium
Mizzou has become the fifth university to join the Center to Stream Healthcare in Place (C2SHIP), a National Science Foundation (NSF) consortium focused on helping patients monitor and manage their health at home.
Skubic and team awarded patent for hydraulic bed sensors
Skubic’s now-patented bed sensors are made with a flexible tube of water that measures blood flow to capture heart and respiratory rate.
Mizzou Engineering team devises novel way to non-invasively monitor heart problems
In the future, people with heart problems may be able to monitor their condition from home, ensuring they are taking the appropriate type and amount of medicine. That’s because a Mizzou Engineering research team has devised a way to non-invasively assess whether a person’s heart is in balance with the circulatory system. The work earned…
Faculty members discuss importance of women in engineering
During a panel discussion around inclusivity last week, faculty members from electrical engineering and computer science (EECS) shared their personal experiences and brainstormed ways to get more females excited about engineering.
Engineering faculty recognized for patents that take research to market
When Mizzou Engineering’s top faculty aren’t teaching the next generation of engineers, they’re busy collaborating with medical, plant science and other researchers across campus to make life better for the rest of us.
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.
Skubic named Curators’ Distinguished Professor
Mizzou Engineering’s Marjorie Skubic has been named a Curators’ Distinguished Professor, the highest honor bestowed on faculty at the University of Missouri System.
EECS Student Wins People’s Choice Award at 3MT® Competition
A Mizzou Engineer took home the People’s Choice award at this year’s 3MT® competition sponsored by the University of Missouri Graduate School. Anup Mishra, a PhD candidate in electrical engineering and computer science, presented a three-minute thesis on creating personalized alerts to reduce alarm fatigue using machine learning techniques in health care settings.
Senior Health Data Sensors Now Available to Private Homes
When a Mizzou Engineer began using sensors to track senior health data in assisted living facilities more than a decade ago, the goal was to someday take that technology into private homes. COVID-19 is forcing that someday to be today.
Student Wins Best Paper Finalist Award at IEEE Conference
Wenlong Wu won a Best Paper Finalist Award at an IEEE conference. A Mizzou Engineering student’s paper was selected as a finalist for best paper at a top engineering conference last week. What makes it more impressive is that Wenlong Waylon Wu forgot to specify that the paper should have been entered in the student category. Instead, it received high honors among professional-level faculty members and researchers from around the world.
