Detecting COVID-19 with a sticker on your skin

Detecting COVID-19 with a sticker on your skin

Contact: Eric Stann, 573-882-3346, StannE@missouri.edu   Zheng Yan One day, a wearable, bioelectronic device could wirelessly transmit a person’s vital signs — potentially providing critical information for early detection of health issues such as COVID-19 or heart disease — to a healthcare provider, eliminating the need for an in-person visit while also saving lives. The […]

Undergraduates Conduct Research Through Mizzou REU

Undergraduates Conduct Research Through Mizzou REU

Mizzou REU participants presented research findings virtually on Wednesday, July 29. They analyzed data from medical records. Studied the impact of virtual learning environments. And came up with ways to better detect fake videos. In the end, participants of this year’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program at Mizzou Engineering gained a deeper appreciation of [...]

NSF Project to Advance Edge Computing

Edge computing has the potential to make our computers and devices run smarter and faster. Right now, though, the technology is in its infancy and not ready for prime time. Prasad Calyam That’s where an inter-institutional research group comes in. Prasad Calyam, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at Mizzou Engineering, is [...]
Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

A team of Mizzou Engineers is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help grow and control large quantities of carbon nanotubes—tiny, cylinder-shaped molecules made of rolled sheets of carbon. Using AI is a novel approach to mass producing them, a problem that has plagued scientists for decades. Now, the National Science Foundation is backing the [...]
Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

The secret to surviving COVID-19 could be locked in our DNA. Researchers are analyzing genome sequences to find clues about why some people are more susceptible to the virus. Right now, doing that work comes with a hefty price tag. But Praveen Rao is developing a way for more scientists to unlock that information for [...]
