Rice University bioengineering professors Rebecca Richards-Kortum and Maria Oden, the winners of the 2013 $100,000 Lemelson-MIT Award for Global Innovation, dedicated their prize money toward the construction of a new neonatal nursery at the African hospital that has helped implement Rice's low-cost, student-designed health care technologies since 2007. The nursery will improve patient care at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi, and support technology innovation through Rice's Day One project.
