Mechanical Engineering associate professor Jianping Fu co-authors a commentary on the subject of synthetic embryos in Nature.
A team of UMEI faculty affiliates and colleagues at Penn State University received word that their recent proposal to the DOE Vehicle Technologies Office has been selected for negotiation for a financial award. The proposal, titled “Tailored Bioblendstocks with Low Environmental Impact to Optimize MCCI Engines,” is a comprehensive study to link the growth and development of feedstocks for advanced biofuels from algae, through production of biocrude, upgrading to optimized fuels and combustion in diesel engines. The acronym “MCCI” refers to mixing controlled compression ignition, which enc
Assistant Research Scientist Eleni Gourgou has received the National Institutes of Health (NIH) K01 Career Development Award, for her proposal titled “Deciphering aging-driven cognitive decline in C. elegans spatial memory and learning through an interdisciplinary approach”.

Michigan News—Human embryonic stem cells can be guided to become the precursor tissue of the central nervous system, research led by the University of Michigan has demonstrated.
The new study also reveals the important role of mechanical signals in the development of the human nervous system.
Most biomechanics research takes place in laboratory settings, in part because conventional approaches, such as optical motion capture, require reflective markers and substantial calibration
