A first look at McKelvey Hall first look at McKelvey HallMcKelvey Hall, named in honor of James M. McKelvey Sr., for 27 years the dean of the School of Engineering & Applied Science, will be located south of Preston M. Green Hall. Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.<img alt="" src="/news/PublishingImages/View-McKelvey-courtyard-1sqd5es-1024x561.jpg?RenditionID=1" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
Noninvasive brain tumor biopsy on the horizon brain tumor biopsy on the horizonTaking a biopsy of a brain tumor is a complicated and invasive surgical process, but a team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis is developing a way that allows them to detect tumor biomarkers through a simple blood test.<img alt="" src="/news/PublishingImages/Chen-Brain-900x600.jpg?RenditionID=1" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />Y
Using tooth sensors to detect disease tooth sensors to detect diseaseAn interdisciplinary team of researchers from the School of Medicine and the School of Engineering & Applied Science is redefining the notion of a wisdom tooth. The team is developing technology that could someday be used to detect early signs of disease.<img alt="" src="/news/PublishingImages/WashU%20Engineering%20electronic%20tooth%20sensor.png?RenditionID=1" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />Y
Defects in tissue trigger disease-like transformation of cells in tissue trigger disease-like transformation of cellsLike termites in a home's foundation, some normal cells in the body can take on characteristics of diseased cells and invade the surrounding tissue, causing big problems. <img alt="" src="/news/PublishingImages/ToC_schematic_v2.jpg?RenditionID=1" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />Y
