Capstone team takes 2nd at Big Ideas

The bioengineering senior capstone design team of Matt Chan, Karthik Prasad, and Sara Sampson took 2nd place in the Global Health category of the Berkeley Big Ideas competition. 

Team Vitalize is developing a wireless vital sign monitoring device tailored for low resource settings to enable the rapid recognition and management of sepsis. Although sepsis-related death is considered preventable with early intervention, sepsis continues to be a leading cause of death, especially in developing countries. 

Congratulations Team Vitalize!
