The National Science Foundation, through its Innovation Corps Teams Program, has granted funding of $50,000 for six months to Shubhra Gangopadhyay, C.W. LaPierre Chair Professor in electrical and computer engineering, and her I-Corps team. The purpose of the program is to provide NSF-funded researchers with additional funds through a competitive process to help turn scientific discoveries into commercialized projects.
What cemented Zach Thacker’s decision to pursue graduate school was the research he conducted. He first worked on some nuclear engineering projects, then got involved with the nanoantenna project. Thacker called the work for that project the moment “when he knew he loved grad school.”
A workshop hosted by the Center for Advanced Nuclear Technology and Micro Integrated Systems focused on some of the smallest technologies and the big impact they can have.
Bala Ramalingam work with nanoparticles led to a 2012 award recognizing his research. Additionally, the work from members of the Gangopadhyay Research Group has garnered more recognition.
Taking on the role of assistant professor of mechanical engineering makes a full circle for Matthew Maschmann. He’ll now work with some of his former mentors, such as his adviser, Professor Bill Ma.
In June 2011, the University of Missouri learned its proposal to work with the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation through its Transitional Partnership Award Program was approved. The accompanying five-year grant agreement provided MU with $5 million, funding intended to serve as a bridge between biomedical research innovations on the MU campus and their introductions into […]
When looking for graduate programs in chemical engineering last year, Leonhard Sze decided to apply to the University of Missouri. Never mind that his first introduction to MU was picking Mizzou to go to the Final Four in his NCAA basketball bracket. The offer of the Robert and Dorcas Holtsmith Graduate Student Scholarship enticed Sze […]
Biological engineering senior Bryant Harris’ future fell into place when he learned he had been awarded a $10,000 research scholarship from the National Consortium for Measurement and Signature Intelligence Research (NCMR). The scholarship program was established to encourage students to consider technical career paths within the intelligence community. “I was overwhelmed with joy when I […]
Yuwen Zhang, professor in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department, stands at the forefront of his field in closing educational gaps. In June he published a premier textbook in an effort to cover all pertinent topics of emerging technologies in a single volume, something Zhang said does not exist. Zhang co-authored “Advanced Heat and Mass […]
Each year, 40,000 cases of salmonella are reported in the United States, though the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) believes that contaminated food may cause up to 35 times that many. It is the second leading cause of food-related illness of bacterial origin. Annually, more than 400 deaths are attributed to the bacterial pathogen, with […]
