A new computational method from the McKelvey School of Engineering helps scientists validate the accuracy of microscopic images.
Researchers at Washington University’s School of Medicine and McKelvey School of Engineering plan to develop a portable, inexpensive and noninvasive 3D imaging system designed to monitor women’s progression during labor. The technology aims to improve maternal and infant health outcomes in underserved regions.
Rohan Mishra and Steven Hartman in the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis have found the relatively abundant and light element fluorine may be an alternative for lithium in batteries.
A multidisciplinary team including researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis has found a new catalyst for hydrogen fuel cells that is less expensive and longer-lasting than platinum.
Meredith Jackrel, in Arts & Sciences, studies protein misfolding and how it leads to disease. She is collaborating with Jai Rudra at the McKelvey School of Engineering to develop amyloid-inspired vaccine technologies specifically tailored for seniors. The approach could be relevant to COVID-19 as the elderly are particularly susceptible to its severe complications.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) announced two research groups led by Washington University in St. Louis faculty were named Frontiers of Imaging grantees.
A new electrolysis system that makes use of briny water could provide astronauts on Mars with life-supporting oxygen and fuel for the ride home, according to engineers at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, who developed the system.
Young-Shin Jun, an engineer at Washington University in St. Louis, has developed a new use for a high-energy X-ray technique that has allowed her the first glimpse at the formation of iron hydroxides on a quartz surface. The implications are sweeping.
Seven faculty members at Washington University in St. Louis are among 489 new fellows selected by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society.
Using quantum tunneling, the lab of Shantanu Chakrabartty, at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, has developed self-powered sensors that can run for more than a year.
