Rory Mather has been awarded the 2019 Harrison D. Stalker Award from the Department of Biology in Arts & Sciences. The award is given annually to a graduating biology major whose undergraduate career combines outstanding scientific scholarship with significant contributions in the arts and humanities.
Astronauts currently aboard the International Space Station have begun an experiment that will allow them to ignite a flame and observe and study its properties. If the experiments — directed by a McKelvey School of Engineering faculty member — show what researchers expect they will, they could lead to a new, fundamental understanding of the properties of combustion.
The university’s interdisciplinary Center for Quantum Sensors aims to harness the power of quantum mechanics to detect and decipher some of the universe’s greatest mysteries. The effort is timely as Congress recently approved a federal program supporting the development of quantum technologies.
A trio of engineering students at Washington University in St. Louis is helping to expand the solar power-generating capabilities at Tyson Research Center, which has frequent outages.
Guangming Zhao thought he just wanted to do basic research when he came to Washington University to work on his PhD. Then he discovered his mission: to help people. His goal is to create the best imaging sensor in the world that will ultimately be able to detect diseases that current ultrasound machines can’t.
More than 230 students from the St. Louis region will launch their balsa wood gliders at the 11th annual Boeing Engineering Challenge at Washington University. The competition follows months of designing, building and testing at elementary, middle and high schools across the region, where Boeing engineers have volunteered as mentors.
Researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering have received funding to engineer microbes that create an underwater adhesive based on, but stickier than, the natural adhesive made by mussels.
The School of Engineering & Applied Science is renamed the McKelvey School of Engineering in honor of trustee and distinguished alumnus Jim McKelvey Jr.
