16 Finalists announced @ MIT Solve’s Brain Health Challenge


As Sharp­Brains read­ers know, MIT Solve issued a call for brain health inno­va­tors world­wide to pro­pose non-inva­sive, non-phar­ma­co­log­i­cal, scal­able tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions that:

  • Enable ear­li­er, more-accu­rate diag­no­sis of prob­lems
  • Increase access to and effi­ca­cy of treat­ments
  • Help build a pos­i­tive, stig­ma-free cul­ture in which all peo­ple feel empow­ered to proac­tive­ly seek bet­ter brain health and men­tal fit­ness

Please join me in con­grat­u­late them for their progress so far!
