Highlights & Achievements


MobiMed was one of the first projects piloted in fall 2013 in IdeaLab@RIT, sponsored by RIT’s Albert J. Simone Center for Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship—where teams of students brainstormed to solve medical-related problems faced by Rochester Regional Health.

MobiMed is a blood transport container system with a regulated temperature for transporting life materials to and from hospitals, allowing phlebotomists to process and refrigerate blood samples in the car—which reduces blood degradation rate to zero percent.

RIT students Kevin Lewis ’14 (management information systems) and Melika Alipour Leili ’14 (industrial design) received the Student Achievement Award in Digital Rochester’s GREAT Awards 2014 \ for their mobile centrifuge project.
