Welcoming new grad students

The Linnes Lab’s first 4 Ph.D. students have joined us here in West Lafayette as part of the newest crop of BME graduates students. Welcome Divya @divzmyster30, Elizabeth @EAPhillips, Orlando @oshoilett, and Taylor @tjmoehling!

Thanks to our AMPATH partners in Kenya – what a great trip to Eldoret!

Dr. Linnes is just back from a week-long trip to Eldoret, Kenya to meet with doctors, nurses, pharmacists, engineers, teachers, and street involved youth. Amazing work going on at AMPATH! Thanks to all our collaborators who helped design a point-of-care test for neonatal sepsis. We’re looking forward to turning these design ideas into an integrated device and […]

Point-of-care diagnostics article published in PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases this week

The Bringing Diagnostic Prototypes to the Point of Care Workshop took place in Nairobi, Kenya in 2012. Researchers developing point-of-care diagnostics for low-resource settings worked alongside policy makers and clinicians from around the world to address the challenges that limit point of care diagnostics development, distribution, and implementation. PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases recently published the recommendations from conversations that emerged from the […]
