Clinicians May Now Be Able To Tell COVID-19 From Seasonal Flu With Fast Turnaround Thanks to UF Research

Led by Dr. Z. Hugh Fan, Ph.D., professor at the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Dr. John Lednicky, Research Professor at the College of Public Health and Health Professions’ Department of Environmental and Global Health, an interdisciplinary team at the University of Florida has developed a game-changing diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2 that is fast, reliable, low-cost and capable of differentiating between COVID-19 and influenza.

Take Off in a Flying Car With UF Engineers and Alumni

As successful serial entrepreneurs, Adam Goldstein (UF BSBA ’01) and Brett Adcock (UF BSBA ’08) are always looking for the next big thing to bring to market. EVTOLs, short for electric vertical take-off-and-landing vehicles, had a compelling appeal, but there were challenges. A sector seated by large aerospace companies, staggering start-up costs and, most importantly, a new space that imposes many technology challenges, the eVTOL industry would deter any seasoned entrepreneur from entering. Yet, a chance meeting with a fellow Gator at a conference turned out to become the beginning of an adventure that could get flying taxis into the air.
