international collaboration

From WBBM Newsradio: May 7, 2020: Fermilab scientist Stephen Brice is featured in this piece on a new, simple ventilator that has received FDA approval. The ventilator that was created by scientists from several countries, including more than a dozen Fermilab scientists. The Mechanical Ventilator Milano was inspired by a device built in the 1960s.

From Chicago Tribune, May 5, 2020: In the middle of a global health emergency, scientists at Fermilab found they had a lot to offer the effort to meet demand for ventilators to treat COVID-19 patients. Fermilab scientist Stephen Brice helps explain how the group, working with colleagues outside the U.S., designed a portable, low-cost ventilator that still is capable of the most precise functions that bulkier, costlier machines provide.

From MVM collaboration, May 5, 2020: The Mechanical Ventilator Milano is an innovative ventilator, conceived and designed by an international collaboration of particle physicists and developed in cooperation with other relevant scientific communities. Its mechanical design is simple, using a small number of parts to facilitate rapid production. Fermilab scientists volunteered their time to design, test and finalize the MVM.
