The American Institute of Architects St. Louis recognized Washington University in St. Louis’ Bryan Hall with a 2020 Merit Award in Architecture. Bryan Hall had at one time housed office and lab space for the McKelvey School of Engineering. It was transformed into additional research space for the Department of Chemistry in Arts & Sciences.
Seven faculty members across four undergraduate schools at Washington University in St. Louis have been honored with the 2020 Emerson Electric Co. “Excellence in Teaching” awards.
Young-Shin Jun, professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has received an $800,486 three-year grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to develop novel mineral-hydrogel composites that can effectively remove nutrients to manage harmful algal blooms. For this project, Jun will collaborate with Yinjie Tang, also professor of energy, environmental and chemical […]
Alex Holehouse, assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics at the School of Medicine, received a one-year $30,000 grant from the Longer Life Foundation for his research titled “Predicting the functional impact of genetic variation within intrinsically disordered protein regions.”
Guy Genin, the Harold and Kathleen Faught Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering, and Stavros Thomopoulous, the Robert E. Carroll and Jane Chace Carroll Professor at Columbia University, have received a five-year $2.44 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop comprehensive models and to conduct experiments to study the […]
Michael Nowak, research professor of physics in Arts & Sciences, won a $51,811 grant from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory for a project titled “Distinguishing between Circumbinary and Interstellar Medium Dust Signatures in GX5-1.”
An internationally renowned team of McKelvey School of Engineering aerosol scientists plans to work with colleagues at other institutions to establish a global network of networks that will collect real-time air quality data and develop ways to solve air pollution with a five-year $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation. Randall Martin, professor of energy, environmental […]
Three Washington University researchers have received Young Investigator Grants from the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. The foundation is committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by supporting research that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research. Read more about the work of Kirsten Gilbert Alberts and Emma Johnson, at the School of Medicine; and Keith Hengen, […]
Li Yang, professor of physics in Arts & Sciences, won a $421,080 grant from the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research in support of a project titled “Nonlinear Infrared Light-Matter Interactions of Topological Quantum Materials.”
Matthew Bersi, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the McKelvey School of Engineering, received a three-year $750,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the role of the cadherin-11 protein in the mechanical injury of blood vessels after a heart attack and how cells respond to promote disease. The grant is […]
