Rob Wild and Tamara King, two student affairs veterans, are moving into new, expanded roles, announced Lori White, vice chancellor for student affairs at Washington University in St. Louis.
Using the gene editing technology CRISPR, scientists at the School of Medicine have shed light on a rare, sometimes fatal syndrome that causes children to gradually lose the ability to manufacture vital blood cells.
Behind the chubby cheeks and bright eyes of babies as young as 8 months lies the smoothly whirring mind of a social statistician, logging our every move and making odds on what a person is most likely to do next, suggests new research co-led by Washington University in St. Louis.
Over the last several months, architecture students from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts have planned, fabricated and installed a 100-foot-long public sculpture at St. Louis Lambert International Airport.
New research from the School of Medicine sheds light on what might be happening in an anxious brain.
Children as young as 3 already are beginning to recognize and follow important rules and patterns governing how letters in the English language fit together to make words, suggests new research from Washington University in St. Louis.
Robyn S. Klein, MD, PhD, a physician-scientist recognized internationally for her work on the brain’s immune system, has been named vice provost and associate dean for graduate education for the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences. She will begin her new post Jan. 1.
Researchers at the School of Medicine have shown that E. coli bacteria — those at the root of hard-to-treat urinary tract infections (UTIs) — hijack trace amounts of copper in the body and use it as a nutrient to fuel growth.
