The research could ultimately lead to earlier detection of the neurodegenerative brain disease that affects 5.8 million people in the U.S.
The finding could someday lead to improved diagnostics and medical treatments for serious and sometimes devastating hereditary heart conditions.
To date, the Office of the Provost has distributed thousands of dollars in grants to support faculty purchasing new technology to make laboratory exercises more engaging for students.
The test demonstrated a key technology needed for long endurance, all‑electric flights for medium-sized UAVs. It could also be the first step toward a future of using hydrogen in aviation.
The organ models, developed in part by WSU scientists, could improve surgical outcomes for thousands of patients worldwide.
WSU researchers have determined how to keep iron from rusting in important chemical reactions that are needed to convert plant materials to fuels. Their work could be used for more cost-effective biofuels conversion.
The society’s E.V. Murphree Award in Industrial and Engineering Chemistry is given each year for outstanding theoretical or experimental research in industrial chemistry or chemical engineering.
The spectrometer will enable WSU researchers to perform more accurate measurements of materials found in spent nuclear fuels, nuclear waste forms and fuel materials.
The WSU-led research team received the $2.5 million grant to work on reducing the use of rare and expensive metals in catalytic converters.
An associate professor in WSU’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Shi has been recognized for his significant contributions to research, teaching and professional service.
