Internationally Recognized Physics Researcher Joins Faculty

Pioneering work by David Singh ultimately will improve efficiency of automobiles, industries and contribute to cleaner fuel consumption

May 05, 2016

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Typically, a car’s engine loses about one-third of its gasoline in heat — not in propelling the car down the road. In fact, according to physics professor, David Singh, about half the energy consumed in the U.S. actually results in waste heat. Recently, the internationally renowned researcher joined the University of Missouri’s […]  Full Story

Gene Replacement Therapy Offers Viable Treatment Option for Fatal Disease

May 05, 2016

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a disease that causes progressive degeneration in the nerve cells that control muscles, thereby causing muscle weakness and eventually death. SMA affects approximately 200,000 people in the U.S., often children. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri are studying a subtype of SMA, spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress type 1 (SMARD1), and have developed a gene replacement therapy that can be used to treat and control the disease in the future.  Full Story
