Case Western Reserve University’s School of Medicine recently awarded a 2017 Hearst Research Scholarship to BBP’s own Engineering Director Eric Salomon. The Heart Scholarship supports research in public health and policy, including that performed in a global context. His research proposal focuses on further developing the OSPRI that forms the cornerstone of our SODIS efforts by developing a polymer matrix that can enhance the efficacy of the sensor. Guided by the mentorship of Dr. Lacks in the Chemical Engineering Department, Eric is excited to dedicate focused time to his project this summer as he recognizes the extraordinary potential of SODIS to impact the health of the world.
