Sarah Salter is currently working on the development of a neonatal warming crib with Rice 360° and will be running the device’s second clinical trial in Malawi in the summer of 2019. She holds a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Rutgers University. As an undergraduate student, she began development of a diagnostic for viral versus bacterial infection in pediatric patients that would be used in low-resource settings. This project showed her the dire need for low-cost medical technology in the developing world and inspired her to become involved in global health. She has experience in experimental design, rapid prototyping, and technical troubleshooting. Sarah plans to attend medical school and, in her career, wants to be a part of healthcare solutions that will make a lasting impact in children's health.
