MSI Principal Investigator Jian-Ping Wang (Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Science and Engineering) led a team that developed the z-Lab, a device that may eventually help physicians diagnose serious ailments with just a drop of blood. Z-Lab has won a $120,000 prize from the Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE. The device detects biomarkers in the blood sample and identifies those that are associated with disease.
Professor Wang uses MSI for theoretical studies of the electronic structure of various materials. This work complements lab experiments.
