One day, people could monitor their own health conditions by simply picking up a pencil and drawing a bioelectronic device on their skin. In a new study, University of Missouri engineers demonstrated that the simple combination of pencils and paper could be used to create devices that might be used to monitor personal health. Their […]
MU receives nearly $4 million from National Institutes of Health to commercialize biomedical discoveries
NIH awarded MU nearly $4 million to lead a consortium of Midwestern universities to collaborate on turning biomedical discoveries into marketable products.
If you’re looking for a holistic approach to neuroscience research and education, the University of Missouri is the place to be each summer.
In June, the College of Engineering played host to the third edition of its National Institutes of Health Brain Initiative Summer Course on Models and Neurobiology, attracting 24 attendees from across the country for a two-week, intensive course on utilizing computer modeling in neurobiology research.
Now, thanks to a new grant from the National Institutes of Health, members of the Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology will investigate tailoring the system to alert the patients themselves or family members, providing actionable data that’s easy for non-health professionals to use.
Satish Nair, a University of Missouri professor of electrical and computer engineering, and three MU faculty collaborators submitted one of only three researcher training course proposals to receive funding from the National Institutes of Health BRAIN Initiative (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) aimed at cross-training researchers in computational neuroscience. The course will provide training to pre- and post-docs, medical students, and junior faculty who are beginning or anticipating potential careers/collaborations in neuroscience.
