CSU Scientists Create Science-inspired Clothing to Raise Awareness for Tuberculosis

 

CSU research associate Alexandra Todd has partnered with CSU Ventures to create CureGear, science-inspired leggings that raise awareness for and support research on tuberculosis. Todd was inspired to create the leggings after viewing tuberculosis under a microscope in the CSU Mycobacteria Research Laboratories. Todd worked with lab mate Jessie Haugen Frenkel and Frenkel’s husband Daniel on the project.

A Kickstarter campaign just ended for the project, raising over $11,000. Frenkel said they’ve already accomplished one of their goals: to connect with women in science across the country. “It’s been a fun way to communicate what we do to others, too,” she said.
