Mizzou Engineer Part of Team Working to Restore Bladder Function

A Mizzou Engineer is part of an interdisciplinary team from across the country selected to study the lower urinary tract in hopes of restoring bladder function to those who suffer from urinary incontinence. About 50% of women and 25% of men suffer from bladder dysfunction. Giovanna Guidoboni, a professor in electrical engineering and computer science, [...]
EPA Awards Grant to MU Researchers for Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

EPA Awards Grant to MU Researchers for Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded a grant to Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Zhiqiang Hu in support of the reduction of food loss and waste using anaerobic digestion (AD). “Anaerobic digestion is when microbes break down organic materials, like food and organic waste, to carbon dioxide and methane without using oxygen,” Hu said. “If […]

Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Current medical technology to replace heart valves is problematic for the patient. Patients with mechanical heart valves must take anticoagulation therapy to prevent blood clots. This solution can cause morbidity. Patients with bioprosthetic heart valves face degeneration and calcification of the implanted valve over time, which may cause more than one surgery in the lifetime […]

Improving Efficiency of Gas-Powered Water Heaters

Improving Efficiency of Gas-Powered Water Heaters

A faculty-led research team at Mizzou Engineering is collaborating with a national laboratory and private industry to develop technology that may ultimately lead to less natural gas consumption in consumer-grade gas water heaters. Hongbin (Bill) Ma, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, is the primary investigator of an MU research group that is tasked with […]

Improving Workflow in an Intensive Care Unit

Improving Workflow in an Intensive Care Unit

A hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) can be a very busy place. Time is of the essence when treating patients, yet time is a limited commodity for ICU nurses. They treat patients, fill out paperwork, talk with patients’ families and much more every day. But time spent not treating patients hinders patient care. And in […]

Meet Giovanna Guidoboni

Meet Giovanna Guidoboni

  Do you have to be good at math to be an engineer? Not necessarily. But it helps to have a good mathematician working alongside you. Meet Giovanna Guidoboni, Mizzou Engineer, mathematician and interdisciplinary researcher. Guidoboni—who became a tenured professor on Sept. 1, 2020—has joint appointments in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science [...]
Study: Drivers Experience Four Levels of Attentive ‘Gaze’ in Response to Alerts From Pre-crash Warning Systems

Study: Drivers Experience Four Levels of Attentive ‘Gaze’ in Response to Alerts From Pre-crash Warning Systems

Drivers experience four levels of attentive ‘gaze’ in pre-crash warning systems from Mizzou News on Vimeo. A collision avoidance system, or pre-crash alert generated by a vehicle, can often be found as an optional safety feature in today’s vehicles to help reduce possible accidents and save lives. However, these systems are not always tested in […]

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 [...]
Improving the Performance of UAVs

Improving the Performance of UAVs

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are a major tool in the current arsenal for the U.S. military. They are used ever increasingly for a variety of missions to help keep personnel out of harm’s way. A UAV must perform well in all environmental conditions, powered by a reliable internal combustion engine and/or electric propulsion. However, the […]

Improving Work Zone Safety

Improving Work Zone Safety

A sure sign that summer has arrived in Missouri is when the heat and humidity return. Another indication of summer is when the “Road Construction Ahead” signs pop up along the state’s highways, roads and streets. These signs usually indicate delays in getting to your destination. Time can be lost due to traffic congestion, work […]
