Emergency Zika Design Challenge

The Johns Hopkins University Center for Bioengineering Innovation & Design (CBID) and Jhpiego invite you to take part in a weekend design challenge to focus on the prevention of mosquito bites in an effort to reduce the spread of Zika. Despite significant efforts and technological advancements, mosquitoes continue to pose considerable public health problems across wide geographical areas. The public health cost is enormous. There is a recent association between Zika virus infection and microcephaly in infants born to women infected during pregnancy and Guillain-Barre syndrome in Zika-infected individuals.
