Join MIT Hacking Medicine, LEO Pharma, Advancing Innovation in Dermatology and Hacking Medicine Institute for the first ever dermatology hackathon!
Did you know that it can take years for patients to be correctly diagnosed with conditions like psoriasis and eczema and that over 60% of all patients are not referred to a specialist correctly? Current treatment options are expensive and patients tend to have low adherence to medication. This is an area that is ripe for innovation in the pre competitive space.
Register now: visit hackingdermatology.org to learn about the challenge areas and apply to attend. On June 8-10, five grants of $5k will be awarded to the top teams. Following the first round of funding, up to $50k in additional grants will be awarded. Both preformed teams and individuals are invited to apply and attend.
Schedule + Time Commitment:
Friday, June 8: evening kick off, team formation + happy hour
Saturday, June 9: team work time with mentors available
Sunday, June 10: teams finalize proposals, final presentations + awards
