IDEA Labs, a student-run bioengineering and design incubator started at Washington University in St. Louis, will expand its national reach through a partnership with the American Medical Association. The collaboration is aimed at supporting cutting-edge medical technology development from the next generation of young entrepreneurs.
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis are using nanoparticle technology in an effort to meet the ever-increasing demand for food. Their innovative technique boosts the growth of a protein-rich bean by improving the way it absorbs nutrients, while reducing the need for fertilizer.
The six Washington University students who went to the Conference of the Parties (COP21) climate negotiations in Paris are well prepared, resilient, tough-minded and in this fight for the duration.
The School of Engineering & Applied Science celebrated the extraordinary accomplishments of six alumni and a former dean at its annual Alumni Achievement Awards dinner April 7.
Students explore the parallels between Challenger disaster and Ferguson crisis during a unique class.
A team of researchers from Washington University in St. Louis have helped discover a new chemical method to immobilize uranium in contaminated groundwater, which could lead to more precise and successful water remediation efforts at former nuclear sites.
After learning that local veterans were facing long waits for mental health services, a team of medical and engineering students at Washington University in St. Louis wanted to help in some way. The team created an app that measures a user’s stress and suggests steps to take to alleviate it.
The Southern Illinois University Alumni Association will honor Viktor Gruev, of the School of Engineering & Applied Science, as the recipient of the 2016 SIU Distinguished Alumni Award for Young Alumni Achievement.
An engineering team at Washington University in St. Louis developed a cellular kill switch, a sensor that rewards hard working cells and eliminates their lazy counterparts. The high-tech engineering fix could help improve production of biofuels and pharmaceuticals.
Fireflies use oscillation to communicate on the same wavelength. An engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has developed a new waveform that can control chemical oscillation in the lab. This finding could lead to better understanding of oscillation as it pertains to heart pacemakers, the brain’s neural patterns and even jet lag.
