Oilfield-equipment manufacturer American Jereh International Corporation showed its support for the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering by granting scholarships to two engineering students for the current fall and upcoming spring semesters.
Thousands of visitors flocked to the Children’s Museum Houston last Saturday to play the top selling video game Minecraft while contributing to invaluable ongoing brain research at the UH Cullen College of Engineering.
A combination of nine university professors and industry professionals is joining the Cullen College of Engineering faculty at the University of Houston this semester. The majority are biomedical engineers with expertise ranging from brain-machine interfaces for control of prosthetic limbs to cell membrane research for diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer.
Immunotherapy, a cancer treatment that utilizes the body’s own immune system to attack cancer cells, has garnered great interest as a relatively new field of medicine that offers an alternative to traditional chemotherapy. Forbes.com writer, Emily Mullin, highlighted breakthroughs in cancer immunotherapy being made at the UH Cullen College of Engineering in her article, “How Bioinformatics Could Find the Next Breakthrough Cancer Drug.”
Researchers have created a new method for screening cells used in immunotherapy cancer treatments, allowing high-performing immune system cells to be studied in isolation and potentially expanding the number of patients for whom the breakthrough treatment proves successful.
UH Cullen College of Engineering professors are known for offering undergraduate students unique opportunities to get involved in high-level research projects. One such opportunity is available through the National Science Foundation's REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Program.
Engineering and computer science professions attract fewer women than other STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields in the United States. For more than a decade, professors at the UH Cullen College of Engineering have worked to change this longstanding tradition by hosting summer engineering camps strictly for girls.
Hydrocephalus is a nightmarish medical condition. Accumulating fluid in the skull ratchets up pressure on the brain and can cause lifelong mental disabilities. Current treatment requires physicians to cut through the skull and implant pressure-relieving shunts.
Researchers are gaining momentum with adoptive cell therapy (ACT), a type of immunotherapy that uses the patients’ native or genetically modified immune cells to attack diseases such as cancer and chronic infection.
The UH department of Electrical and Computer Engineering hosted the Capstone Design and Graduate Research Conference on May 1 at the UH Hilton. The day-long event included technical sessions in which graduate and undergraduate student research and projects were presented.
The scholarship committee for the Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston is pleased to announce the TcSUH scholarship recipients for the 2015-2016 academic year, each of whom will receive a $2,500 award. The qualifications and achievements of the nominated students were exceptional, and final deciions were difficult. We are fortunate to have such a talented group of students who conduct research in TcSUH's multidisciplinary groups.
