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.
Welcome to Cortex, an innovation community started in 2002 thanks to a lead investment from Washington University. Drone footage takes you through the formerly blighted industrial complex that is now a hip mixed-use space and home to more than 5,800 jobs. This is Cortex.
Engineers from the McKelvey School of Engineering want to know if they can use nanotechnology to control neurons and parse the relationship between neural activity and behavior and disease.
Rajan Chakrabarty, assistant professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering, received the 2019 Schmauss Award from the German Association for Aerosol Research (Gesellschaft für Aerosolforschung) at the European Aerosol Conference in Gothenburg, Sweden.
A researcher at the McKelvey School of Engineering is working to improve the way autonomous vehicles make decisions, and the way they relay that information.
