Director’s message
With our growing research program, the addition of new faculty members, and creative ways to provide hands-on learning, we are finding success during a challenging year.

Using soy to improve bone cancer treatment

A recent study showed that releasing soy-based chemical compounds from a 3D printed bone-like scaffold reduced bone cancer cells while building up healthy cells.

Liquid hydrogen to power UAVs

Researchers demonstrated a key technology needed for long endurance, all electric flights for medium-sized UAVs. It could also be the first step toward a future of using hydrogen in aviation.

A 3D-printed heart valve model

The organ model, developed in part by WSU scientists, could improve surgical outcomes for thousands of patients worldwide.

Hands-on learning at a distance

They might not be in class physically, but students in Professor Arda Gozen’s class are interfacing remotely with robotic arms.
