UT Arlington receives Grand Challenges Explorations grant for research in global health
Date:1/10/2013

Two UT Arlington engineers will use a new Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant to update an ancient method of evaporation to cool vaccines and medicine that must be shipped to remote parts of the world without ready access to electricity.

The University of Texas at Arlington announced that it is a Grand Challenges Explorations winner, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Seung Mun You and Hyejin Moon, two Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering faculty members, are using aluminum and nanopore technology to update an evaporative process known as "zeer cooling." They will pursue an innovative global health and development research project, titled "High Performance Portable Evaporative Refrigeration for Vaccine Delivery."

"We have an entire population that isn't getting the proper medicine and vaccines because of where they are located," said You, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering in UT Arlington's College of Engineering. "We will use nanotechnology to circulate water that will keep the vaccine cargo cool through evaporation."

Grand Challenges Explorations funds individuals worldwide who are taking innovative approaches to some of the world's toughest and persistent global health and development challenges. GCE invests in the early stages of bold ideas that have real potential to solve the problems people in the developing world face every day. You's project is one of more than 80 Grand Challenges Explorations Round 9 grants announced recently by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

"Investments in innovative global health research are already paying off," said Chris Wilson, director of Global Health Discovery and Translational Sciences at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. "We continue to be impressed by the novelty and innovative spirit of Grand Challenges Explorations projects and are enthusiastic about this exciting research. These investments hold real potential to yield ne
