Wenbing Zhao awarded TeCK Funding, will continue research

During its November meeting, the Selection Committee for the TeCK Fund selected two full proposals to receive $100,000 each in commercialization acceleration funding. Dr. Wenbing Zhao, a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), will continue to develop his Privacy Aware Compliance Tracking System to ensure best practices are followed by nurses and patient handlers in elder care settings. A Kent State research team was funded for their submission titled “Torel, LLC - Toxic Gas and Vapor Sensors.”
