Michael Takla, Rotimi Fadiya, Prateek Mathur and Shivad Bhavsar, have just received the James Dyson Award for their hand-held skin cancer detecting device. These students are graduates from the Electrical and Biomedical Engineering program and worked on this project through their capstone course. Their product is used for early detection of melanoma, which is a form of skin cancer. Now, they are a client at the Forge and will be using this $50K award to further their device. Congratulations to this incredible team!
