When was your last ‘Aha’ moment? Mine came when I was introduced to Wallace Coulter. Wallace had the ability to see things the way they are and imagine the way they could be. Coulter’s innovations cast a larger than life shadow. Though he passed away several years ago, he remains a giant in biomedical engineering. For a man who never earned a college degree, his inventions still make a difference in others’ lives.
Wallace invented the Coulter Counter – the world’s first automated blood cell counter. His passion for biomedical engineering research and development led to a successful global company. The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation was created to honor his legacy for biomedical engineering.
