From our colleagues at MATTER - Check out this exciting opportunity involving Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis!
We're working with Three Lakes Partners on the $1M IPF Catalyst Challenge to develop solutions that help people living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. IPF is an incurable, terminal, scarring disease of the lungs that is usually fatal within 5-7 years. Every year in the United States, IPF kills as many people as breast cancer.
We're looking for big ideas that accelerate the time to diagnosis or improve quality of life or treatment. The challenge is open to any type of technology – including analytics, engagement, education, monitoring, coordination, or other.
To find these big ideas, we need your help.
Next week, we are hosting two events – one in Boston and the other San Francisco – to increase awareness of this disease and encourage innovators across the country to participate in the IPF Catalyst Challenge.
Do you have friends and colleagues in San Francisco or Boston? Please invite them to learn more about this $1 million opportunity.
