Gillings Innovation Labs

Dr. Lydia Abebe (front left), co-recipient of a Gillings Innovation Lab award in 2016 with Dr. Mark Sobsey, meets with project participants in Cambodia.  In August 2017, the project team conducted a field study  in Cambodia to develop a universally-marketable chitosan coagulation product for ceramic pot filter users.

Stay tuned for Round 7!
We expect to issue Request for Proposals (RFP) for new Gillings Innovation Labs submissions in Summer 2018.
