Come be inspired by Houston's first female "genius grant" winner and the 2016 Seeds of Hope recipient keynote presentation from Dr. Rebecca Richards-Kortum, Director of Rice 360° at Rice University. Introductory remarks will be given by Dr. Joanne Carter, Executive Director for RESULTS & RESULTS Educational Fund.

Dr. Richards-Kortum is the Rice University Malcolm Gillis University Professor of Bioengineering and the Director of Rice 360° Institute for Global Health. Her research has been instrumental in improving early detection of cancers and other diseases, especially in low- resources settings. She is currently working with colleagues and undergraduate students to develop NICU Africa (neonatal intensive care unit), a suite of appropriately designed medical technologies necessary to reduce neonatal death in sub-Saharan Africa to rates equivalent to the United States.

Rice 360°'s undergraduate students have benefited 93,000 people in 24 countries by designing 215 new technologies, such as a low cost CPAP machine for helping newborns breathe.
