XPrize-Winner Bridges Science Fiction and Science

October 09, 2018 by Wendy Plump

Alumnus Basil Harris, MD, PhD, endured the crucible of the Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize competition, won it in 2017 through his self-funded, family-based company, and visited Drexel to tell a packed conference room at Gerri C. LeBow Hall about the experience during the Symposium on Noninvasive Medical Technology last week.

Harris’ keynote address was shot through with humor, humility and elaboration for an audience of students largely unfamiliar with the tricorder, a space-age medical tool on the television series “Star Trek.” Harris described the five-year XPrize competition to engineer one as a seemingly endless series of “building and scrapping and building and scrapping” as he and family members developed a hand-held device that can diagnose patient symptoms in real time from their homes.
