LeanFridge is a mobile application that targets the massive food waste problem in the United States. Every year, approximately 31% of food is thrown out, producing a large amount of methane gas and costing the average family of 4 $1,500 in wasted groceries. LeanFridge helps users reduce their waste by keeping track of their grocery purchases and sending them notifications when their food is expiring. It helps them find a use for this food by helping them find recipes and build menus based on their current inventory, dietary needs, and budget constraints. The application will also offer services such as uploading personal recipes, sharing recipes, and aggregating coupons for items in the users' shopping lists.
Search engine for Ayurveda type of products like herbs, plants and others with artificial intelligence on common deceases. User can use search engine with knowledge graph for specific plant or tree and how it can be used in medicine. In the same type user can search for illness and result will show complementary or alternative medicine for it. Few examples are fever, cough, consumption, diarrhea, dropsy, abscesses, seizures, leprosy, angina, diabetes, hypertension, stones etc. Although laboratory experiments suggest it is possible that some substances in Ayurveda might be developed into effective treatments, there is no evidence that any are effective. One of the instances for Ayurveda treatment can be Sattvic diet - regimen that places emphasis on seasonal foods, fruits, dairy products, nuts, seeds, oils, ripe vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and non-meat based protein.

As the world progresses towards a primarily digital age, the ability to digitize material is more and more in demand. To create an accessible way to digitize documents, our team has developed a printer/scanner. When the PrintaScan is attached to the apple case, it has an elegant look that would complement any mac laptop. The PrintaScan looks much better than the average large box-like printers that one would see in a house, because we allow the user to create their own "skin" [all external sides of the device]. A competitive advantage is that the device is less than .65-inches thick. No other device in the entire industry can print or scan and be as small as ours. Having a portable printer and scanner would solve any problems someone may encounter while traveling, or if a college student needs space in their dorm. Lastly, we can print and scan notes and convert them automatically to a word document. We need the funding to develop this software and build the product’s hardware.

We aim to keep high schoolers focused on their collegiate dreams. Users first select a dream college either through a 50th percentile/100th percentile match of their GPA/standardized test scores, and then it gives notifications when they are getting off track! It also alerts what grade must be attained on the next quiz, test, or even homework assignment to stay above a certain percentile for their dream college. This would greatly improve the focus rate since they have something to strive towards.

Remember eating Otter-pops when you were a kid? What if there were otter pops for adults? Well, there are! North Polez are alcoholic Otter-pops for adults. You might not think alcohol can freeze but believe it or not there are several ways to "freeze" alcohol. In fact, 3 North Polez (57ml tubes) would contain as much as 1 shot of 100 proof liquor. Google search "Alcoholic Ice Cream" and you'll find several companies selling pints of alcoholic ice cream. However, most of these products either contain very low concentrations of alcohol or are expensive. Otter-pops, on the other hand, are cheap and come in bulk boxes. Staying true to this business model, North Polez would come in bulk boxes, be cheap, and targeted towards young adults. Step aside Jell-O shots, North Polez are here.

The project is a free food application aimed for students at the University of Washington. The app informs students about the events on campus that serve free food. The app also acts as a place for RSO Organizers to publicize their events and provide food as an incentive to gain more members. The project is handled only by two of us so far and is scheduled to launch the beginning of spring quarter.

Pre-clinical drug screening capabilities are failing to meet the demands of the modern pharmaceutical industry, resulting in extraordinary costs and a bottleneck for innovation. This is particularly true for very promising new drug targets that involve the highly specific inhibition of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) which are the cause of many difficult to treat diseases. The average cost of pre-clinical screening for each new FDA approved drug in 2016 was over $1 billion and increasing an 8.5% per year. Pre-clinical screening consists of individually testing thousands or millions of candidate drug compounds for targeting the correct protein without also targeting unrelated proteins. Unfortunately, current methods based on highly automated robots are highly time consuming, expensive and often not accurate leading to expensive failure of drugs during clinical testing or even after drugs are on the market. At A-Alpha, we have developed Pharma-seq: the first truly high-throughput platform for screening drugs that inhibit PPIs. We have taken a synthetic biology approach and developed a screening platform based on yeast mating that can characterize whole protein interaction networks in just a single tube, which allows the screening to be carried out in a massively parallel manner. This disruptive technology will vastly reduce the complexity, cost, and time required for developing PPI inhibiting drugs and will open the door to the development of new classes of drugs.
We are upgrading everyday items to serve a second function- generate electricity. Our goal is to make an inexpensive, safe, easy to install, easy to fix product.

While in the Foster School of Business Evening MBA Program, I work for the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health as a Senior Program Manager. I focus primarily on health systems strengthening interventions in Haiti including clinical mentoring, health information systems for improved patient care and health workforce development. Since I served in the Peace Corps in West Africa, I have been compelled to make health systems work better: to serve more people, more efficiently; to provide a better quality service; and, to ultimately improve health outcomes in low resource settings. I have worked at different levels of implementation: from directly interacting in the local language with the communities served to working for the donor and informing strategic funding decisions. These experiences have enriched my approaches to health systems management and enabled me to understand the impact of programs from multiple perspectives. I have seen health systems fail patients unnecessarily due to inefficient services, poor management of staff and resources, and lack of protocol. I am driven to preventing needless suffering and death through innovated health delivery models, better planning and management, and patient advocacy.
