Nikhil Gopal built a disk with microfluidic paths for his project: Point of Care Testing for Malaria Using a Smartphone and a Microfluidic ELISA Chip. It separates material from the patient into a small sample whose color determines the status of the patient. This is analyzed by a smartphone that detects the different colors.
James Gow's project,Testing Valproate and Surfanct Regulation as Potential Therapeutics for Nitrogen Mustard-Mediated Lung Injury in Wistar Rats, has implications for cancer and chemical warfare treatment.
The following are the award lists with different sorting and grouping.
