096: Bioengineering Malaria with Paul Lebel

Over the next 4 episodes, we’re going to take you on a tour of the CZ Biohub in San Francisco where scientists are working to cure, prevent, or manage disease by the end of the century.

Every year, 400,000 people die of malaria – usually children in impoverished areas. In the first episode of our Biohub series, you’ll meet Paul Lebel, a member of the CZ Biohub Bioengineering team, who is helping to create a device that uses machine learning to accelerate and improve the process for identifying malaria-infected red blood cells. If the project is successful, the hope is that they can diagnose the disease faster and help save lives.
