DGHI professor Nimmi Ramanujam once envisioned life as a musician but found her purpose in engineering--lucky for Duke University, Duke Engineering, Duke Center for Global Women's Health Technologies, and most importantly, for the many underserved women worldwide for whom Nimmi and her team create innovative biomedical solutions! She's now finding her way back to music. https://bit.ly/2y7cLAW

Using data from NASA satellites, DGHI prof Bill Pan and Ben Zaitchik of Johns Hopkins University are refining a method to predict malaria outbreaks three months in advance. This innovative new method will help countries figure out where to deploy limited public health resources.
