Blood Diagnostics for Global Healthcare

Rapid and inexpensive blood diagnostic tools that are easy to use at the point-of-care or provide sample stability for transport. This work will transform healthcare across all continents by providing quick, affordable, and reliable information.

Dr. Charles Mace, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and by a prestigious NSF CAREER award, will lead this revolution.

Dr. Mace and his team are using simple engineered biomaterials like paper, fabric, and textile fibers to designactive sensors and passive medical devices that are inexpensive, portable, and easy to use.
