Disease Diagnostic INventors Challenge

We seek to catalyze the development of novel disease detection technologies through a competitive application process that incentivizes the formation of multidisciplinary teams of clinicians, life scientists, engineers, and analytical chemists. Only team applications will be accepted and all team members are considered co-PIs.  Teams must be composed of, but not limited to, one clinician (in human or veterinary practice) or biologist, one engineer, and one analytical chemist. Team proposals are limited to $30,000 per team for a one year project period. It is anticipated that 3 teams will be funded for the 2018-2019 period.

June 28: The Team Building Day set of events will highlight investigators’ expertise and laboratory capabilities that are available to address clinical needs presented by medical and veterinarian experts (see calendar attachments for further details).

June 29: The Proposers Competition Day will involve teams pitch presentations of their technology idea to a panel of judges. Team presentations will be ranked and winners will be selected on the same day (see calendar attachments for further details).


Requirements - 3 Slides to be presented in a 7 minute presentation (+ 3 minute Q&A) on the June 29th Proposers Competition Day


Slide #1: INventors biosketch & team structure

Slide #2: Disease area being addressed & needs assessment

Slide #3: Proposed DD technology
