All of our Summer Institute programs are in full swing as our 2017 participants are currently on the ground in Nicaragua, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, and Nepal!
That's not all we're up to. Check out our January Institute photo albums, and the latest news about our BMET Library and Kits!
Summer Institute 2017
During a visit to Hospital Japon Amistad in Nicaragua, one group had a chance to explore the hospital’s “junk heap,” where equipment goes when it’s basically ready to be discarded.
On-the-Ground Coordinator Jack Livingston writes, “We found a couple of centrifuges and decided to take a look. It would be a good learning experience even if we couldn't get them running again. Centrifuges are also my favorite device to work on!”
And now it works! Jack reports, “It will be going back to use in the laboratory now. I love the before and after images of this centrifuge coming back to life from the trash pile outside with Coca-Cola bottles.”
