    Rapid results lead the way in inventing the high-tech, low-cost future of medicine

Rapid results lead the way in inventing the high-tech, low-cost future of medicine

The world does not yet have a Star Trek tricorder. But UW bioengineers are developing devices and technology that may be powerful precursors to Dr. McCoy’s handy 23rd century diagnostic device, and may make improving health faster and easier than ever before. Researchers are answering the call for accessible, rapid testing tools, which can speed the time until treatment starts, helping prevent deaths, outbreaks and disability.
