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 […]

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 [...]

Flu researcher brings team together to tackle COVID-19

Henry Wan studies flu viruses and is now part of research tracking COVID-19. | Photo by Roger Meissen, Bond Life Sciences Center Professor Henry Wan has studied flu viruses for years, and he can assure you, coronavirus is not the same. It’s trickier. Less predictable And for many, deadlier. But there are insights scientists can [...]
Site Connects Users to Reliable Information About COVID-19

Site Connects Users to Reliable Information About COVID-19

A new website developed by Mizzou Engineers provides reliable information about COVID-19. Looking for reliable information about COVID-19? Want to access articles quickly without having to sort through hundreds of journal articles? You’re in luck. Graduate students at Mizzou Engineering have developed a tool to help you sift through resources fast. KnowCOVID-19 is a website [...]
Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

REU Program students study consumer networking. Students from across the country will spend the next 10 weeks developing consumer networking skills. It’s part of a Research Experiences for Undergraduates, or REU, program at Mizzou Engineering funded by the National Science Foundation. And for some, it’s life changing. The REU program gives undergraduates an opportunity to conduct [...]
Student Devises Way for Robots to Anticipate Human Behavior

Student Devises Way for Robots to Anticipate Human Behavior

Hao Sun A Mizzou Engineering graduate student has been invited to share his work at a prestigious conference after devising a way for robots to learn human intention and anticipate their behaviors. Hao Sun will participate in the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) Conference hosted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) [...]
How to Stay Private While Sharing on Social Media

How to Stay Private While Sharing on Social Media

This diagram, provided by Associate Professor Dan Lin, shows how images can easily be shared with an unintended recipient. In this case, Alice unsuccessfully attempted to block Mary from seeing her photos. More people are turning to social media for human interaction during stay-at-home orders, but one Mizzou Engineering researcher warns that oversharing gives scammers [...]
Those with chronic illnesses look to web for support during crisis

Those with chronic illnesses look to web for support during crisis

Sean Goggins Roughly 150 million U.S. citizens with chronic illnesses turn to online support communities for assistance — a number likely to grow as COVID-19 forces high-risk individuals to stay home. But not all online health forums are created equal, one expert from Mizzou Engineering warns. “More people are going to be relying on online [...]
Weightless Wonderland: Mizzou Engineering Team Does Research in Zero Gravity

Weightless Wonderland: Mizzou Engineering Team Does Research in Zero Gravity

A research experiment by a Mizzou Engineering team in a zero-gravity environment could lead to the development of an efficient method of harvesting water in space. With funding from NASA, the project aims to contribute to future missions to Mars and beyond and for the crew members on the International Space Station (ISS). From William […]

Research has Implications for Aging, Arthritis and Osteoporosis

Research has Implications for Aging, Arthritis and Osteoporosis

It is well-known that a lack of physical activity can cause bone loss or fractures in elderly people, bedridden patients or even sedentary youth. That’s because bone mass is regulated, in part, by mechanical stimuli. Similar to muscles, bones add mass when they are mechanically loaded via physical activity but will lose mass if immobilized […]
