An Ohio State University engineering professor and PhD candidate want to change how medical and research laboratories analyze patient samples.

Biomedical Engineering Associate Professor YI Zhao and Graduate Research Assistant Hanyang Huang have invented a smartphone-based, portable pathology slide scanner. In January, the pair received a $225,000 National Science Foundation Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I award.

The small business that will utilize the funding is LiveFocus, a company Zhao launched in 2014.
