Brenda Barnicki86618While a degree from the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis prepares students for a wide variety of careers, Brenda (Westbrook) Barnicki may have stretched hers among the farthest — she's now a chocolatier.3/22/2017 8:34:04 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu3/22/2017 8:34:04 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
A probiotic stress fix23170​U.S. soldiers face continuous periods of excessive stress in “fight-or-flight” situations, triggering surges of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters, often known as an adrenaline rush. While these surges are important for relaying messages in the brain, prolonged high levels can cause long-term health problems, including anxiety and susceptibility to infection.3/22/2017 8:12:28 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu3/22/2017 8:12:28 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js

WashU Engineering offers new masters in health care operational excellence23184The School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis is offering a new master's degree that will use engineering principles to dramatically improve health-care operations. 3/22/2017 1:59:20 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu3/22/2017 1:59:20 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Environmental budget cuts could be grim309518​The public is getting its first look at the Trump administration budget proposal, which includes steep cuts to federal agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency — with a 31-percent proposed reduction and its Office of Research and Development set to be slashed — and the National Institutes of Health decreased by nearly 20 percent. A pair of engineers who are water and air-quality experts at Washington University in St. Louis say the budget moves could signal sweeping changes in the way our nation regulates and researches the environment.3/20/2017 2:22:22 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu3/20/2017 2:22:22 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Preventing lead spread309283​​While lead pipes were banned decades ago, they still supply millions of American households daily with drinking water amid risks of corrosion and leaching that can cause developmental and neurological effects in young children.3/20/2017 6:09:05 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu3/20/2017 6:09:05 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
ShiNung Ching NSF CAREER Award89986​Engineers are able to look a system, such as an airplane, and by analyzing its physical characteristics predict how easily it is to control, such as how well it steers, how fast it can go or how many maneuvers it can do. Now, an engineer at Washington University in St. Louis wants to apply that same theory to the human brain. 3/22/2017 6:03:16 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx0https://engineering.wustl.edu3/22/2017 6:03:16 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
