Artificial nose project makes it to final round of the Pitt Innovation Challenge (PInCh).

September 12th, 2018

The design of an artificial nose for disease detection and health monitoring earns Dr. Wilmer and PhD student Jenna Gustafson a spot in the top six teams for the 3rd and final round of PInCh 2018.


Their team, Health-E-Nose, aims to commercialize a breath sensor for disease diagnosis and the overall improvement of human performance. Joining them are collaborators Dr. Paul Ohodnicki and Dr. Jagannath Devkota of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), experimentalists with expertise in the design of gas sensor devices.

Wilmer and Gustafson will be pitching Health-E-Nose at the final round of PInCh on September 26th, for a top prize of $100,000.
