Nuttada Panpradist and Rahil Jain, both Ph.D. students in UW Bioengineering Associate Professor Barry Lutz’s lab, are among 10 finalists around the nation for the APF Student Technology Prize for Primary Healthcare. The competition, administered by Massachusetts General Hospital’s Ambulatory Practice of the Future (APF) and sponsored by the Gelfand Family Charitable Trust, encourages and supports engineering students’ efforts to develop innovative, clinically relevant primary health care technology concepts.
As finalists, Nuttada and Rahil will receive $10,000 to advance their projects and prepare a final proposal. Finalists will submit their final proposals in August, from which first place ($150,000), second place ($100,000) and third place ($50,000) winners will be selected.
