D-Lab Health Update: May 9th at the MIT Museum

Where: MIT Museum
When: May 9, 2009

Our students have decided to address a group of multidisciplinary challenges they encountered in Nicaragua. Despite the awesome weather in Boston this weekend, they are furiously designing and prototyping in the lab to meet their deadlines.

What we expecting: We have devices that address issues in pulmonary drug delivery for the rural situations, post-operative infection control solutions, glucose monitoring, and novel centrifuge designs to enable accessible diagnostic procedures in developing world laboratories.

We'll keep you up to date!
