BME Student Wins Healthcare Prize
The Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT) has named PhD student George Daaboul (BME) winner of the 2011 CIMIT Prize in Primary Healthcare, which provides seed funding to engineering students to develop innovative technologies aimed at improving healthcare delivery at the frontlines of medicine.
The designation comes with $150,000 to advance Daaboul’s research project, a diagnostic platform that can perform a multi-pathogen test that’s rapid and easy enough to be used at the point of care. The technology could enable physicians to quickly pinpoint viral infections and reduce unnecessary antiviral and antibiotic usage.
