Looking deeper with adaptive six-dimensional nanoscopy
With a $2 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant, Matthew Lew at the McKelvey School of Engineering will develop smart microscopes to reveal dynamic interactions between individual biomolecules.
20 years of progress in interfacial sciences and engineering
Young-Shin Jun, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, co-authored a review paper in Chemical Reviews that celebrates scientific advances in the field of interfacial reactions, which happen at the boundary where materials in different phases meet.
McKelvey Engineering presents alumni, dean’s awards
The McKelvey School of Engineering recently honored alumni and friends for their service to the school, thought leadership, business acumen and impact.
Using computer science to mitigate earthquake impact
With a new grant from the National Science Foundation, Christopher Gill at the McKelvey School of Engineering plans to advance cyberphysical systems’ performance for applications in earthquake safety.
Engineering students take second place in WERC competition
Students from the Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering competed in the WERC Environmental Design Contest as a part of their environmental engineering capstone course, winning second place in the bench-scale competition.
Engineering team receives $3.6M to combat plastic waste
Washington University is leading a new effort to address the grand challenge of developing the next generation of high-performance, sustainably sourced and biodegradable plastics that advance engineering while also protecting the environment.
Preterm births could be predicted at around 31 weeks
Researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering are developing better ways to predict preterm birth by analyzing electrical activity during pregnancy. Arye Nehorai’s lab uses electrical activity and deep learning to make predictions.
Bogost named Barbara and David Thomas Distinguished Professor
Ian Bogost has been named the Barbara and David Thomas Distinguished Professor at Washington University in St. Louis.
Wearable, light-based brain-imaging tech to be commercialized with aid of NIH grant
Wearable brain-imaging tech aims to reveal how the brain works in natural, realistic situations. Washington University researchers received a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to develop and commercialize a brain-imaging cap that uses LED light to gauge brain activity.
Induction of a torpor-like state with ultrasound
Some mammals and birds have a clever way to preserve energy and heat by going into torpor, during which their body temperature and metabolic rate drop. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis safely and noninvasively induced a torpor-like state in mice and rats by using ultrasound to stimulate the hypothalamus preoptic area in the brain.
