College Grad Stays Positive And Makes A Difference

"It involves things people haven't done before," Borazjani said. "Goals for the field are very beneficial and very possible."

Borazjani said a 2010 internship with a South African hospital changed his life. After seeing so many women there affected with post-pregnancy bladder dysfunctions and babies born with bladder problems, he decided to find some opportunity to help.

Returning home, he joined with Weed and faculty mentor Jun Liao, an MSU associate professor of biomedical engineering, to begin work on possible solutions.

Borazjani also enlisted assistance from the university's Entrepreneurship Center and the Office of Technology Commercialization to help turn his vision into reality.

Gerald Nelson, director of MSU's E-Center and the Thad Cochran Endowment for Entrepreneurship, said some institutional partners have shown interest in assisting as the company grows. Among others, the business plan recently was reviewed by Bill Aulet of Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan Entrepreneurship Center, Nelson added.

Having reached the milestone of a bachelor's degree, Borazjani has his mind clearly focused on making a difference in the lives of as many people as possible.

"We want to make sure mothers are alive to be with their children," he said.

Borazjani is the son of Abdolsamad and Fatemeh Borazjani. His father is a research associate in the basic science department of MSU's College of Veterinary Medicine.
