UW Engineering Partnerships Get Big Boosts from State

Five company-researcher projects connected with the UW College of Engineering (CoE) were awarded state funding from the Washington Technology Center (now Innovate Washington).

ME and Hummingbird Scientific: nanoscale imaging of materials in temperature-controlled fluid environments.

EE, CSE and Pico Computing: high-performance parallel computing for accelerating genomics processing.

BioRobotics Lab, EE and Simulab Corp.: software to measure hands-on surgical skills.

CoE; Chemistry and SpringStar, Inc.: a significantly improved mosquito trap for use by the U.S. military, mosquito abatement districts and consumers.

Medicine and Healionics Corp. (spinoff from UW Engineered Biomaterials center): reduction of infection from skin-breaching devices such as catheters.
