MU Big Data researchers build neuro collaborations through symposium

The University of Missouri is already doing groundbreaking work in pairing Big Data experts with clinical and life science practitioners in order to produce cutting-edge results out of the wealth of data the latter groups create with their research. And a group of College of Engineering researchers is looking to expand collaborative efforts even further.

Engineer, research collaborators team up on computational neuroscience training

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.

Robotics Design Challenge engages Missouri youth

Problem solving and communication were big aspects of the 10th Annual Robotics Design Challenge, also known as the LEGO Challenge, which took place in the auditorium of MU’s Engineering Building West on April 11. Around 145 elementary and middle-schoolers from across Missouri came to Columbia for the event.

Neuro-LEGO Robotics program teaches engineering basics

This semester, as many as 180 children will participate in the Neuro-LEGO Robotics camps held at Mizzou. Since they began in 2006, more than 600 elementary and middle school students have participated in the camps. Satish Nair, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and biological engineering, heads up the program. Nair said James Thompson, […]

Visiting students learn from MU educators

Many university undergraduate students don’t have the opportunity to participate in specialized research opportunities. Thanks to a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF REU) grant coordinated by Satish Nair, a University of Missouri professor of electrical engineering, 12 students from across the country were able to participate in a nine-week summer research opportunity […]
