Two faculty members from Washington University — Princess Imoukhuede and Philip R. O. Payne — have been named fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). AIMBE’s College of Fellows is limited to the top 2% of medical and biological engineers.
Research from the lab of Kimberly Parker at the McKelvey School of Engineering reveals how certain, toxic byproducts of hydraulic fracturing are created. The next step is to determine whether or not there’s something to be done about it.
Jianmin Cui, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, and Po wei (Billy) Kang, an MD/PhD student at the School of Medicine, led an international team that studied heartbeat regulation and heart function. The work was published in Science Advances.
Washington University’s Princess Imoukhuede and Lori Setton join more than a dozen of their colleagues across the country calling for racial equity in federal funding of biomedical engineers.
The Musculoskeletal Research Center at Washington University School of Medicine has given Spencer Lake, associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the McKelvey School of Engineering, a one-year $40,000 grant to use machine learning to better understand elbow injuries.
WashU engineers have developed a biosensing microneedle patch that can be applied to the skin, capture a biomarker and, thanks to its unprecedented sensitivity, allow clinicians to detect the biomarker’s presence.
Research led by Jian Wang, professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, uncovers a previously undocumented source of aerosol formation, which will improve climate models.
