Dr. Lampotang & Team Receive a UF Innovation Award for PanVentTM

Congratulations to Samsun Lampotang, Ph.D., FSSH, FAIMBE, Gordon L. Gibby, MD, MSEE, David Lizdas, BSME, and their team, who have been honored with a UF Innovations of the Year award for the PanVentTM low-cost, open-source ventilator they created during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The award from UF Innovate | Tech Licensing was presented during a virtual awards ceremony on Sept. 22, 2020, honoring six inventions of the year chosen from 393 inventions disclosed in fiscal year 2020.

The PanVentTM initiative began with a March 16 email from associate professor Patrick Tighe, MD, MS, who suggested an open-source, 3D-printed ventilator as the pandemic accelerated in the United States. At the time, the medical community was scrambling to treat the sickest patients.
