Pakistani student wins Global Pediatric Research Investigator Award for making painless needles
Mir Ibrahim Sajid, a 21-year-old student of a private medical university, has been given the award by the international science journal Nature.
In a blog for Echer, Mir Ibrahim talks about his invention, saying that his father is a doctor and that is why he has spent a lot of time with his father in hospitals, where he has seen children afraid of needles. But he decided to find a solution to trypanophobia.
Mir Ibrahim’s invention has passed all laboratory tests and is now awaiting the results of its clinical trials.
