“SIMPL-CD” Proposal Garners NIH Distinction for BME Assistant Professor

Michelle Khine receives NIH New Innovator Award

Advances in microfluidic devices point to a promising future of accurate, portable, inexpensive technology for improving the diagnosis of a myriad of diseases in areas where access to advanced medical equipment is limited. Michelle Khine, assistant professor of biomedical engineering and chemical engineering and materials science, will use a $2.295 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director’s New Innovator Award to develop Khine’s existing micro- and nanofabrication technology to create microfluidic devices to detect rotavirus infections from saliva samples in children in developing countries.

Trashing the Ocean

On a clear spring day at Crystal Cove State Park, UC Irvine professor William Cooper and undergraduate Tova Handelman sift though a mound of seaweed and sand, oblivious to the curious stares of beachgoers. They're too busy studying trash.

"Look at all this plastic!" says Cooper, picking out a pellet no bigger than a grain of rice from his growing pile. "This is a 'nurdle.' They're used to make plastic products. They shouldn't be on the beach, but if you look closely, they're all over."
