Patricia Weisensee, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the McKelvey School of Engineering, plans to develop a liquid-metal-based heat switch for use in space with a three-year, $600,000 early-career award from NASA.
With a $1.2 million grant from NASA, Randall Martin in the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis will lead a team of researchers working to improve a high-performance climate model, making it more accurate and more accessible.
A multi-institutional effort that includes the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis will bring man and machine together in an effort to accelerate the process of discovery of new materials.
Engineers from the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University have shown that the length of collagen fibers has a role to play in the ability of normal cells to become invasive.
A Washington University in St. Louis researcher has shown for the first time that the shape of a nanostructure has an effect on its ability to retain water. This has important ramifications for heat transfer, which is important when it comes to performance in small electronics.
Working with other academic, government, and research institutions, Washington University in St. Louis to help develop desalination technologies and find new uses for old water.
A team of researchers, led by Philip V. Bayly in the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, plans to use MRI to study the brains of healthy, uninjured individuals to create models of brain motion to enable the researchers to predict the chronic effects of repeated head impacts in both men and women.
Washington University’s collaborative Center for Quantum Sensors was awarded a Quantum Leap Challenge Institute (QLCI) conceptualization grant from the National Science Foundation to help advance applications of quantum information science.
Using massive amounts of data and a novel computing approach, engineers at Washington University in St. Louis are applying new control methodologies to biological systems.
With Square, LaunchCode, Third Degree Glass Factory and more to his name, alumnus Jim McKelvey Jr. is often called a serial entrepreneur. In fact, he has just never met a problem he didn’t want to solve.
