Mask Hacks – COVID-19 Response from Biomedical Engineering

November 8 to November 12

A masked student carries a stack of books across campus.

A team of BME researchers applied their skills in design and engineering to create low-cost, emergency solutions to personal protective equipment shortages early in the pandemic. Dr. Devin Hubbard highlights some of the collaborative work he and his team did early in the COVID-19 Pandemic—this work resulted in 1 FDA-cleared mask, 2 patents, 2 licenses and a startup company. The work highlights the efforts of an incredible team across 2 universities and multiple departments solving (nearly) impossible challenges on tight timelines to help frontline healthcare workers and members of the community.
