With his research on the human respiratory system, Jeremy Bonifacio, a winner of the 2014 Innovation Challenge, continues to use high-tech solutions to address longstanding environmental and public-health issues.

Nursing student Robin Koeppel’s research examines how Neonatal Intensive Care Units can prevent blood stream infections stemming from central line catheters in newborns.
Avoiding infection is of primary importance and often involves changes to how providers (nurses, physicians, and others) care for the central line. For example, restructuring how medications are administered using the central line reduces the number of opportunities to introduce infection. Fortunately, over the past several years, NICU Quality Improvement (QI) programs across the nation have been successful in reducing the incidence of central line-associated infections.
