10 Nov Rice University undergraduate design team takes National Institutes of Health top prize



It’s no longer a mousetrap, not even a better mousetrap, but a “low-cost, mechanical fluid regulator.”

“I guess the name isn’t as catchy, but the device is improved and we know it will actually work in the field where it’s needed,” said Matthew Nojoomi, a junior majoring in bioengineering at Rice University and a member of the design team that created the award-winning IV DRIP (Dehydration Relief in Pediatrics).

IV-DRIP is one of three student teams honored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in its Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams (DEBUT) competition, winning in the category of technology to aid underserved populations. The Rice students will receive the $10,000 prize at the annual meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society in Seattle, Sept. 25-28.
