Paul Yager Talks Paper-Based Diagnostics at TEDx Rainier
22 December 2014
Last month, Dr. Paul Yager, Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington and one of the pioneers of Microfluidics 2.0, took the stage at TEDx Rainier to discuss his lab's work on and his vision for the future of paper-based diagnostics. Dr. Yager talks about the many use cases for paper-based testing, ranging from at-home testing in the developed world ("Can I send my kid to school?" or "What's that itch down there?") to critical disease diagnosis and outbreak control in the developing world and beyond (Ebola). Dr. Yager's talk was just published to YouTube--I highly encourage you to check it out to learn more about this field and the passion that motivates one if its leading researchers.
