The CellScope, a project of Bioengineering students let by Associate Professor Dan Fletcher, BioE Ph.D. candidates David Breslauer and Wilbur Lam and BioE alum Robi Maamari, has been picked up by news media across the country.
The CellScope is a project to turn the camera of a cell phone into a clinical-quality light microscope that can transmit images of patient samples remotely for evaluation by specialists. Especially suited for use in the developing world, the cellscope project is being funded primarily by the Blum Center for Developing Economies, CITRIS, and Microsoft Research.
