The McGill Engine Prize, funded by our generous donors, the late Jim Brodeur and his wife Barbara Brodeur, is to support a technologically based venture competing in the final round of the McGill Dobson Cup competition. To be eligible for the McGill Engine Prize in the McGill Dobson Cup, at least one team member must be a current full-time student or professor in McGill’s Faculty of Engineering and the venture must be technologically based. Teams competing for this prize must pitch to the McGill Engine team. The prize is only awarded if more than one team makes the final round and they rate above adequate in their final pitch and venture evaluation by the McGill Engine team. The 2020 winning team was awarded $5,000 and announced during the Dobson Cup Awards online ceremony which took place on July 30, 2020.
Our mission is to provide high-quality diagnostic equipment to North American hospitals for the rapid, inexpensive, and high-throughput screening of MRSA in admitted patients. We are a team of three final year Bioengineering students.
