2009 Tong Biomedical Engineering Design Award Winners


Jeremy Glynn and Andrew Dias earned the Tong BME R&D Award for their design, "Low-cost spirometer."The competition took place April 2 on the UW-Madison College of Engineering campus.


A follow-up competition award will provide funding to enable a junior or senior design team to further research and develop their design. Ultimately, that goal is to advance the invention to commercialization.


Sponsored by University of Wisconsin-Madison electrical engineering alumnus Peter Tong via the Tong Family Foundation, the Tong awards reward biomedical engineering undergraduate teams that design innovative solutions and develop outstanding prototypes. Their work addresses real challenges that University of Wisconsin medical and life sciences faculty and area biomedical companies face and offer for the students to solve.








Tong BME Research and Development Award


  • Jeremy Glynn and Andrew Dias will continue research and development for their design, “Low-cost spirometer.”

The Tong Biomedical Engineering Design Awards are made possible by a generous gift from the Tong Family Foundation (UW-Madison alumni Peter and Janet Tong).
