Marcus Foston, an associate professor at the McKelvey School of Engineering, is one of 20 awardees selected by the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy facility, for this year’s exploratory call.
Research from the lab of Hong Chen, at the McKelvey School of Engineering and the School of Medicine, and collaborators found that using focused-ultrasound-mediated liquid biopsy in a mouse model released more tau proteins and another biomarker into the blood than without the intervention. This noninvasive method could facilitate diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders.
A study in iScience led by biologist Yehuda Ben-Shahar in Arts & Sciences identifies a link between the genetic instructions for the perception and production of pheromones.
Christine O’Brien, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, and her team have received a $20,000 prize from the National Institutes of Health (NIH)’s Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics Technology for Maternal Health Challenge.
Jai Rudra, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, won a four-year $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support his lab’s research on adjuvants, materials that help make vaccines work better and last longer.
What changes and trends could we see this year? WashU experts in areas from artificial intelligence to climate to fashion share their insights.
Work by Sang-Hoon Bae, an assistant professor at the McKelvey School of Engineering, and his international team of collaborators would make next-generation electronics faster and use less power. Their study was published Jan. 18 in Nature.
Katharine Flores, a renowned materials scientist who develops new complex metallic alloys and advanced manufacturing techniques, was recently installed as the Christopher I. Byrnes Professor of Engineering.
A beautifully written celebration of molecular biology with meditations on the spiritual and religious meaning that can be found at the heart of science, this volume makes an important contribution to the ongoing dialog between science and religion. This book will engage anyone who was ever mesmerized–or terrified–by the mysteries of existence.
Arye Nehorai, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been selected for the 2022 IEEE Signal Processing Society (Sustained Impact Paper Award, which honors authors of journal articles of broad interest that have had impact over many years.
