Interdisciplinary team to study practices, policies around Missouri River
A Mizzou Engineer is leading an interdisciplinary team tasked with creating innovative, practical and balanced ways to manage the Missouri River’s water resources.
As president of IEEE CIS, Keller puts focus on outreach, education and diversity
Curators' Distinguished Professor Jim Keller is serving as president of the Computational Intelligence Society under the umbrella of IEEE.
Engineer receives $2.3 million grant to investigate new disease
Professor Shinghua Ding has received a five-year, $2.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to investigate a previously unknown disease.
MU announces creation of the Missouri Water Center
The University of Missouri today announced the creation of the Missouri Water Center, a central hub for research on the state’s water resources.
Adolescent psychological well-being tied to adult risk of cardiovascular disease, study finds
Scientists have known for years that a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) can be lowered with lifestyle changes such as modifying diet, exercise, alcohol and tobacco use. Now Anand Chockalingam and Sharan Srinivas at the University of Missouri demonstrate in a new study that a long-term association also exists between an adolescent’s psychological well-being and their risk of CVD as an adult.
Engineer uses advanced deep learning to predict where proteins will localize within cells
A Mizzou Engineer is developing computational tools that can be used to predict where proteins will localize within a cell. Using highly advanced deep learning, the resource could help researchers better understand how proteins function or, if positioned incorrectly within a cell, misfire and cause problems.
Industrial engineers analyze perceptions of insurance industry
Despite their catchy commercials, insurance companies have a public relations problem. Numerous studies have shown that general perceptions of the industry are negative. Now, a team of Mizzou researchers have used their industrial engineering expertise to find out why.
Cheng elected to American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering College of Fellows
Jianlin “Jack” Cheng — William and Nancy Thompson Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science — has been elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows for his outstanding and pioneering contributions to developing machine learning for modeling protein and genome structures.
Mizzou Engineer proposes new guidance law for landing on Mars
Landing a spacecraft on Mars isn’t an easy feat. According to NASA, only about 40 percent of all Mars missions have succeeded, because it requires a vehicle to go from 12,500 miles per hour to zero in a short amount of time while adjusting for heat, pressure and other constraints. Now, a Mizzou Engineer is proposing a new landing strategy that could be more efficient and effective than current methods.
Researchers use machine learning to decipher 17th Century handwriting
University of Missouri researchers are closer to deciphering historical scripts that could shed light on life and business in 17th Century Latin America.
