Mizzou Engineer searches for internship

The Career Fair gave junior Taylor Sass the opportunity to market herself to potential employers and gain important insight into the atmosphere of each company. Photo by Brandan Haskell. On Tuesday, the MU College of Engineering hosted its Fall Career Fair where students had the opportunity to talk with more than 170 companies in hopes of networking or even landing a full-time job. Booths lined Mizzou Arena, which was packed full of students eager to talk with representatives from their…

Stretchy wires for the future

Credit: ACS Scientists at Duke Chemistry, NC State Engineering and the University of California – San Diego have teamed up to create stretchable, flexible wires that conduct current and change colors to indicate they’re about to reach the breaking point. Future uses could be wearable electronics, biomedical devices and soft robots. (Paper: “Mechanochromic Stretchable Electronics,” Applied Materials and Interfaces, Aug. 9, 2018) Explore further: Team develops simple hydrogel modification method toward stretchable and transparent electronics More information: Meredith H.…

Alternative treatment for peripheral artery disease — ScienceDaily

Cristina Sabliov, LSU Biological and Agricultural Engineering professor, and Tammy Dugas, professor in the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences, have joined forces to fight peripheral artery disease, or PAD, an ailment affecting 8 million Americans. Thanks to a $200,495 Louisiana Board of Regents grant and $50,000 LIFT2 grant, the pair is developing an alternative treatment for PAD using a nanoparticle delivery system and nontoxic polyphenols that will give patients better options for PAD treatment with…

Self-healing reverse filter opens the door for many novel applications — ScienceDaily

A self-healing membrane that acts as a reverse filter, blocking small particles and letting large ones through, is the “straight out of science fiction” work of a team of Penn State mechanical engineers. “Conventional filters, like those used to make coffee, allow small objects to pass through while keeping larger objects contained,” said Birgitt Boschitsch, graduate student in mechanical engineering. She and the research team, however, developed the exact opposite, a stabilized liquid material that screens out smaller objects while…

Genetic error led humans to evolve bigger, but more vulnerable, brains

A novel synthetic antibody enables conditional ‘protein knockdown’ in vertebrates — ScienceDaily

Research groups led by Dr. Jörg Mansfeld of the Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden (BIOTEC) and Dr. Caren Norden of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) have developed a novel synthetic antibody that paves the way for an improved functional analysis of proteins. They combined auxin-inducible “protein knockdown” with a synthetic antibody to not only observe fluorescent proteins in living cells but also to rapidly remove them in a temporally controlled manner. Perhaps the…

MU’s STEM Cubs Program lands award from prestigious magazine

Yesterday, the University of Missouri STEM Cubs Program received the 2018 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the largest and oldest diversity and inclusion publication in higher education. The Inspiring Programs in STEM Award honors colleges and universities that encourage and assist students from underrepresented groups to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). MU will be featured along with 77 other recipients in the September 2018 issue. The Inspiring Programs in STEM…

Can radar replace stethoscopes?

Researchers at FAU’s Institute of Electronics Engineering have developed a radar system which enables touch-free monitoring of heart sounds. The red beams show where the measurement is being made. Credit: FAU/Kilin Shi Along with a white coat, a stethoscope is the hallmark of doctors everywhere. Stethoscopes are used to diagnose the noises produced by the heart and lungs. Used in the conventional way, vibrations from the surface of the body are transmitted to a membrane in the chest-piece and then…
