CBC: Reverse innovation brings technology from developing nations to Canada

May 11, 2015 — 

As the CBC reports:

Stephen Pistorius, a physics and astronomy professor at the University of Manitoba, would one day like to see his creation in Canada. He’s working on a cellphone-size contraption that uses microwaves to detect breast cancer.

Pistorius says his primary goal is for Nigerian and South African women in rural communities to be able to use the product to screen themselves for the disease.
