QED Student Team Wins Venture Award

Competing against 60 teams in the 2014 Columbia Engineering Venture Competition, PhD Devices, a product of Mount Sinai’s QED course, won second place and was awarded a $15,000 prize. PhD Devices has since then formed NovoCount, LLC, which focuses on developing microfluidic technologies allowing patients diagnosed with neutropenia to monitor their neutropil count at home.
