MSE alumna Grace Hsia (BSE '12) was recently featured in The Detroit News for advances with IncuBlanket, a nonelectric blanket she created to help save babies in resource-scarce hospitals across the globe. Earlier this year Hsia and her company, Warmilu, were cleared to sell the life-saving product in Africa. Hsia estimates that the IncuBlanket will save more than 10,500 infants this year in Somalia, Rwanda and Uganda.

In May Hsia won $72,000 from the Detroit WeWork Creator Awards and in 2016 was named a Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree.
