Northport High School alumnus and UCLA biodesign fellow Glen Meyerowitz
was recently featured on NBC News for building a device that could
potentially serve as a proof-of-concept for a low-cost ventilator.
Hospitals in New York and Long Island have reported ventilator shortages
amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Meyerowitz graduated from
Northport High School with an IB diploma in 2009 and graduated from
Yale University in 2014 after taking a year to study abroad in China.
From there, he worked for a time at SpaceX – a California-based
aerospace manufacturer – and is now a graduate student at University of
California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
