Research from the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis has determined that locusts can smell explosives and determine where the smells originated — an important step in engineering cyborg bomb-sniffing locusts.
The federal Office of Fossil Energy has granted researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering nearly $7 million to refine a new power plant that’s suitable for fossil fuels and renewables — and will emit almost no carbon.
Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis are developing a method to diagnose brain tumors using ultrasonic energy — and no incisions. Lead researcher Hong Chen has received $2.5 million from the NIH to pursue further study.
A new algorithm developed in the lab of Jr-Shin Li at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis provides a framework for solving complex linear inverse problems that doesn’t require a supercomputer and also enhances security and privacy.
Two doctoral students from the lab of Abhinav Jha, at the McKelvey School of Engineering and the School of Medicine, presented four talks on computational nuclear medicine imaging at the recent annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.
Research from a multidisciplinary team led by Washington University in St. Louis may provide new insights into wound healing, fibrosis and cancer metastasis.
A holographic display developed by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis improves physician accuracy when performing a procedure to treat irregular heartbeat.
Modeling from the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis shows how social distancing could have better been implemented. The key? Longer periods of distancing would have helped — but only to a point. More needed to be done.
The McKelvey School of Engineering’s Damena Agonafer is one of 85 early-career engineers selected to attend the National Academy of Engineering’s 26th annual US Frontiers of Engineering symposium. Attendees were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations.
Nearly 240 scientists signed onto a letter urging the World Health Organization to recognize the airborne spread of COVID-19. Here’s what a signatory from Washington University in St. Louis has to say.
