Taylor Mabe NanoTube screen still

(Exerpt from nano.gov announcement – February 16, 2017)

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) is pleased to announce the winners of this round of Nano Film, a video contest that asks people to talk about nanotechnology. This round’s winners come from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where nanoscience graduate student, Taylor Mabe, collaborated with film student, Jenna Schad, to film Portable Devices for Disease Diagnostics.

Their video describes a nanotechnology-enabled, handheld sensor that could “do an analysis anywhere in the world at any time!” As Taylor explains, sensors like these could be used by soldiers in the field, by patients requiring care and testing at home, or by doctors to screen patients who live in areas that are difficult to access.

Congratulations to Taylor and Jenna!
