Class of 2014: Tackling a Global Health Problem
Focusing on addressing a global health challenge, students prototyped a biomedical device and developed a business plan under the direction of Prof. Aaron Kyle. The program culminated in a presentation to executives from the biomedical community. The judges selected two winning teams: VitaLight and Euphoria. The VitaLight team, which included Matthew Chung, Michael Harris, Arif Mahmud, and Nebil Salih, created a low-cost, solar-powered LED light array that could illuminate medical wards during the frequent blackouts that occur in low-resource settings. Team Euphoria, which included Jenny Dong, Mahfuzul Islam, Enkel Prifit, and Ruiqui (Rachel) Wang, designed a low-cost, feedback-controlled neonatal warming device. Both teams will have the opportunity to continue developing their projects over the next year at Harlem Biospace.
