Keivan Ettefagh ’12 PhD focused on lab testing innovations

Keivan Ettefagh was working with James Patrick Healy ’14 PhD and others at Select Laboratory Partners on an innovative COVID test, when we checked in during the first months of the pandemic. They have continued to do COVID testing using the process the company developed at the onset of the pandemic. “My focus (very recently) has been on health management through advanced laboratory testing,” Keivan said. They have begun making presentations on this. The goal? To not only reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome (eg, diabetes) but save significantly in health care costs by reversing the progression of disease, Keivan explained.
