Students Developing Low-Cost Device for Monitoring HIV Levels in Blood Win National Competition

A team of UC San Diego students took first place in the National Academy of Engineering 2017 Global Grand Challenges Summit (GGCS) business plan competition for their work on developing a low-cost device for monitoring HIV levels in blood. The Worldcare Technologies team, which includes three current students and recent graduates of NanoEngineering, is comprised of two collaborating teams: Jacobs School of Engineering's own Global Ties Open Viral Load and the UC San Diego student chapter of Engineering World Health (EWH). Together, the winning team is helping curb the HIV epidemic. To read more about this work, please click here for the full story.
