Yip Lab secures Gates Foundation Grand Challenges Explorations Grant

Congrats to the Yip lab, who in collaboration with Professor Stephen Matthews, Physiology / Fraser Mustard Institute for Human Development, and Zulfi Bhutta, Hospital for Sick Children, secured funding from the Gates Foundation Grand Challenges Explorations Program - Round 14 -  for their proposal: "Skin to Skin: Sensing Age Through Light"

The aim of this project is to  test whether measuring skin thickness and cellular composition by non-invasive diffuse optical spectroscopy can be used to estimate the gestational age of newborns, which is important for maternal and child health.
