CentriCycle, Inc. is a non-profit organization working to improve healthcare in rural India through the implementation of appropriate medical technology and education. We believe healthcare should not be stationary. Despite government investment of financial resources of over $1.5 billion USD in rural health in India, disease incidence has only worsened in recent years. We have identified one key factor in the increasing disease incidence as the paucity of point-of-care diagnosis in rural villages in India. To combat this problem we are launching with our first device: the CentriCycle Centrifuge. Our centrifuge separates blood in 5 minutes, enabling diagnosis of diseases regardless of electricity or infrastructure. http://centricycle.org/

    CentriCycle is my passion. I co-founded CentriCycle nearly 4 years ago when we turned a freshman class project into a student organization. Now, we have stepped beyond the university and I am working full-time leading CentriCycle I co-led the student team with Alex Thinath, organized two field-testing trips to India. I have been featured as the UM entrepreneur of the year and in Business Insider. We had 22 students of 15 different majors. As a company, we have 1 employee and 3 student interns.
