The Health Maker Lab at Illinois is a maker lab network where the only limit to harnessing technology to improve human health is your imagination. Students and citizen scientists alike can collaborate, ideate and create unique solutions to global health challenges by prototyping anything at any scale—from molecules to cells to tissues to systems.
