Seeking to stimulate collaboration between faculty and students in STEM fields with those in the social and behavioral sciences and humanities, two research centers at Missouri University of Science and Technology have joined forces to offer the university’s first biomedical humanities symposium.Read More »
With an enthusiasm for chemistry that’s hard to miss, and scientific achievements that defy her age, Cholaphan Deeleepojananan, a senior in chemistry at Missouri University of Science and Technology, chose her path while in high school in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.Read More »
A promising discovery for advanced cancer therapy reveals that the efficiency of drug delivery in DNA nanostructures depends on their shapes, say researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology and the University of Kansas in a scientific paper published today (March 21, 2018).Read More »
A Missouri S&T civil engineering professor will lecture and conduct research in Australia as a Fulbright scholar in advanced science and technology.
Dr. William Schonberg, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, has been named a Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Advanced Science and Technology. His appointment begins in January 2019 at the Defence Science and Technology Group, a government agency in Melbourne.
Giving birth to a child can be described as a sacred, spiritual and life-changing experience. It can also be fraught with pain, fear, complications and injury to both child and mother. For Dr. Steve Corns, associate professor of engineering management and systems engineering, the key to removing some of the uncertainty associated with giving birth may lie not with woman or man, but with machine — machine learning, to be precise.Read More »
Missouri S&T’s expertise in electrical and computer engineering will play a role in a new, federally funded national security research project led by the University of Missouri-Kansas City.Read More »
Motorcycle clubs, popular in American culture since the 1970s, bear striking resemblance to organized religion in both rituals and language, says Dr. Jossalyn Larson, assistant teaching professor of English and technical communication at Missouri S&T. Larson expands on that theory in a book chapter to be published this spring.Read More »
Women who consider careers in the physical sciences, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields are deterred by stereotypes that impose barriers on the recruitment, retention and advancement of women in STEM, according to a researcher at Missouri S&T.Read More »
The Experimental Mine at Missouri S&T is known to many as the site of a popular summer Explosives Camp for high school students, and for its designation by Popular Science magazine as the country’s “coolest lab.” For Dr. Catherine Johnson, assistant professor of explosives engineering, the Missouri S&T mine is also an invaluable testing ground to study a life-altering ailment that can impact athletes, car accident victims, members of the military and others: traumatic brain injury (TBI). In partnership with neuroscientists from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and researchers with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the native Briton uses the outdoor lab to mimic battlefield conditions and explore how carefully calibrated explosions affect the brain’s wiring.Read More »
Petroleum engineering researchers at Missouri S&T renew industry collaboration on gel to reduce excess water during oil production
Dr. Baojun Bai has spent more than 20 years working to refine a particle gel he hopes could significantly reduce the amount of wasted water generated in oil production. But when it comes to describing the super-absorbent polymer, he reverts to an analogy that instantly resonates with anyone who’s had to wrangle a fussy newborn. The Missouri S&T researcher’s quest for a superior preformed particle gel that can be injected into oil reservoirs has the financial support of industry heavyweights such as ConocoPhillips, Occidental Petroleum and Daqing Wantong Chemical (DQWT) in China.Read More »
