Sanjit Datta

Sanjit Datta, Executive Director of the Billion Bottle Project, has won a 2016 Daniels Summer Research Scholarship from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine where he is a first-year medical student. Sanjit’s summer project will make progress on BBP’s OSPRI development goals by studying the basis of UV-sensitive formulations and their response to both natural and artificial UV light sources. Such study is essential to getting the development of the OSPRI off the ground and into the world to provide clean water! Guided by BBP’s own faculty advisor, Dr. Lacks, Sanjit is excited to make great leaps in developing SODIS techniques for global dispersal.
