Chip Shot: Intel and NSF Support Healthcare Innovation with $3 Million Award

Yesterday, Intel and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the first InTrans award of $3 million to a team of researchers designing customizable, domain-specific computing hardware to address health care needs. The research, being led by a team at the University of California, Los Angeles, could lead to less exposure to dangerous radiation during x-rays and patient-specific cancer treatments. InTrans awards aim to bridge the gap between government funded research and industry support for prototypes and products. Get more information.
