Allergen Detection Device

(L-R) Alexander Corelli, Kevin Huynh, Jaime Meriwether, and Roger Huang 

Kevin Huynh, Electrical Engineering graduate student and team lead. (Kevin also earned his undergrad degree here at the Jacobs School.)

Jaime Meriwether, NanoEngineering undergraduate and a team lead.

A few shots from the "Allergen Detection Device" team at the design competition of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, on Warren Mall today. This was part of the campus wide Triton Day at UC San Diego.

The team showed off their allergen detection device prototype...which is just one of the many possible applications of the technology they are developing: an automated ELISA assay and detection device.

You hear the word "interdisciplinary research" thrown around all the time, but the students highlighted how this project was the real interdisciplinary deal.

Team Leads:
Kevin Huynh (Electrical Engineering)
Jaime Meriwether (NanoEngineering)

Team Members:
Alexander Corelli (Electrical Engineering)
Roger Huang (Electrical Engineering)
Aung Myo (Rady School of Management)

I had to leave the event before the winning design team was announced...stay tuned to find out which ECE team won.
