Matthew Lew, assistant professor in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, plans to develop a new technology combining chemical probes, optics and imaging software to see inside cells at the nanoscale level thanks to a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, which provides $500,000 over five years.
A team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis and their German collaborators say a compound found in green tea could have lifesaving potential for patients with multiple myeloma and amyloidosis, who face often-fatal medical complications associated with bone-marrow disorders.
A paper authored by Stephen Linderman, an MD/PhD candidate at Washington University in St. Louis, recently took first prize at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exhibition.
In response to the federal government’s to controversial immigration ban, Washington University in St. Louis sophomore Jordan Gonen launched the site CelebrateImmigrants.us, an inventory of immigrant business founders from Irish immigrant James Gamble of Procter & Gamble to South African-born Elon Musk of Tesla.
After 14 years as the “Bear Cub Challenge,” Washington University in St. Louis’ competition for inventors has received a new name: the LEAP Inventor Challenge (Leadership in Entrepreneurial Acceleration Program).
Washington University in St. Louis made great strides in 2016 in developing and licensing innovative technologies to solve real-world problems. The university earned an estimated $16 million in royalties and licensing agreements related to technology development.
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis develop new nanoparticle technology that eliminates the need for cold storage in some medical diagnostic tests.
An engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has found a new way to neutralize the dangerous chemical chromium-6 in drinking water, making it safer for human consumption.
A Washington University physicist practiced at finding tiny diamonds in stardust from the pre-solar universe has repeatedly failed to find them in Younger Dryas sedimentary layers, effectively discrediting the hypothesis that an exploding comet caused the sudden climate reversal at the end of the last Ice Age.
The associate professor in the School of Engineering & Applied Science works to create powerful sensors that can detect chemicals, biomarkers that could speed health-care diagnostics and new materials to clean dirty water.
