UR Researchers Developing Portable Blood Testing Device
In September, the National Science Foundation announced a $600,000 grant for a Rochester-based program that will develop and manufacture new portable testing devices. The work is based on super thin membranes developed by James McGrath, associate professor of biomedical engineering.

“Pardon Jim Scheible if he hopes his University of Rochester women’s basketball team has selective memory regarding last season. The veteran coach hopes the Yellowjackets remember how well they played when they surged to a 17-0 record and a No. 5 national ranking. He also hopes they’ll remember the lessons learned from their crash landing, when UR lost six of its final eight and missed the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time in seven years.”
