WashU engineer to design catalyst for wasted plant material248419​Since 1975, vehicles have included a catalyst in their catalytic converters that facilitates conversion of harmful pollutants into less harmful emissions before they leave a vehicle's exhaust system. A chemical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis is designing a new type of catalyst that turns wasted plant material into a product that can be used for renewable chemical and material production. 2/23/2017 5:11:00 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/23/2017 5:11:00 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Common heart ailment target of new WashU Engineering research248437​More than 14 million Americans have an irregular heartbeat that predisposes them to sudden death. New research by a biomedical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis seeks to understand the issue at the molecular level with the goal of improving therapies. 2/24/2017 8:40:12 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/24/2017 8:40:12 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js

Mariah Weyland Gratz191537​While changing one's career from medical device development to real estate development may seem like a big leap, for Mariah Weyland Gratz, engineering was the common thread between the two. 2/16/2017 10:10:07 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/16/2017 10:10:07 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Molecular function connected to high blood pressure, other diseases investigated379108​By changing one small portion of a stimulus that influences part of one molecule's function, engineers and researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have opened the door for more insight into how the molecule is associated with high blood pressure, autism and movement disorders.2/14/2017 10:50:34 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/14/2017 10:50:34 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Three questions with Gautam Dantas379110    ​More than any other discovery in the modern era, antibiotics have changed the world. Once-deadly infections are easily treatable, surgeries are safer, and other life-saving treatments — such as chemotherapies — are only possible with antibiotics.2/23/2017 5:09:48 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/23/2017 5:09:48 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Better than a pill378221​A twisted ankle, broken hip or torn knee cartilage are all common injuries that can have medical ramifications long after the initial incident that causes them. Associated pain, inflammation, joint degeneration and even osteoarthritis can sideline a variety of different people: athletes, weekend warriors and patients who are either aging or inactive.2/17/2017 6:11:41 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/17/2017 6:11:41 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
The power of tea377725A 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, according to a team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis and their German collaborators.2/21/2017 3:15:32 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/21/2017 3:15:32 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Matt Lew NSF CAREER Award188257​Microscopes have allowed researchers to look inside of cells since the late 17th century, but the technology limits what can be seen. An engineer at Washington University in St. Louis plans to develop a new technology combining chemical probes, optics and imaging software to see inside cells at the smallest level – the nanoscale. 2/17/2017 6:11:13 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu2/17/2017 6:11:13 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
