Two teams of Hopkins undergrads among winners at MIT young inventors competition

Two teams of Johns Hopkins undergraduate biomedical engineering students are among six groups to receive a 2018 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize, which recognizes promising young inventors from around the country.

Winners, announced today, were chosen based on several factors, including the overall inventiveness of their work, the invention's potential for commercialization or adoption, and youth mentorship experience.

The Hopkins-based AssistENT team developed a device aimed at helping people breathe easier; the Treyetech team created a device to help surgeons successfully complete corneal transplant surgery. Both teams received $10,000 awards.
