Chao Zhou, a professor of biomedical engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been elected a fellow of Optica and of the American Heart Association.
Shantanu Chakrabartty, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, will lead the Neuromorphic Integrated Circuits Education network, a team that is looking at the brain and its neural mechanisms as a model for hardware and algorithms that make the most of computational performance with the least amount of power.
Katharine Flores at the McKelvey School of Engineering will collaborate on a National Science Foundation-funded project to build simulation-informed models that predict material properties in 3D-printed metallic glasses
An interdisciplinary team of WashU researchers developed CATCH, a potentially powerful automated tool for mitigating the spread of infectious diseases among front-line health-care workers.
Rajan Chakrabarty at the McKelvey School of Engineering received funding through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Facilities Integrating Collaborations for User Science program to explore how physical and chemical properties of aerosols are distributed vertically in the air. The research will help develop and evaluate atmospheric models.
Amazon uses smart speaker interaction data to infer user interests and target ads in ways the company was not upfront about, according to research from Umar Iqbal at the McKelvey School of Engineering.
Washington University and St. Jude research groups have uncovered the rules for organization of cellular condensates implicated in ALS.
A team led by Lan Yang at the McKelvey School of Engineering developed a novel whispering-gallery-mode microprobe that optimizes detection of molecular fingerprints.
