The University of Missouri College of Engineering and School of Medicine once again received approximately $500,000 to cover five grants for cutting edge biomedical innovations from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.
The Bioengineering Department named its outstanding student award recipients, while Associate Professor Raghuraman Kannan received the Senior Faculty Excellence in Research Award at the annual College of Engineering Awards Dinner, held March 18 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Columbia as part of the College of Engineering’s Engineers’ Week celebration.
The University of Missouri’s Coulter Translational Partnership Program awarded grants totaling $500,000 to five teams of researchers on Sept. 24. Each two-person team, consisting of an engineering faculty member and a clinician from the MU School of Medicine, received $100,000 to fund projects that have the potential to improve or save patient lives by addressing a well-defined health care need.
Raghuraman Kannan has combined his background in chemistry, joint appointments in bioengineering and radiology, entrepreneurial roots, collaborative spirit and tireless energy into promising research for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Raghuraman Kannan was very close to his to his cousin Jegan, a chemist who ran his own lab in India. When the younger man […]
Six grants totaling approximately $600,000 were awarded Sept. 30 to interdisciplinary teams comprised of an engineering faculty member and clinicians. The funding comes from the University of Missouri’s Coulter Translational Partnership Program.
The inception of a new program called the Life Science Innovation and Entrepreneurship graduate certificate aims to bring together students from diverse disciplines who share a similar passion.
The MU Coulter Translational Partnership Program in September announced funding for six biomedical research projects, each a collaborative effort by an engineer and a physician.
