NineSigma has announced the launch of the Head Health Challenge on behalf of GE & the NFL. Partnering up to accelerate concussion research, diagnosis and treatment, the Head Health Initiative aims to develop new solutions to help diagnose mild traumatic brain injury. This initiative includes two components: a four-year $40 million research and development program to determine the key imaging biomarkers in the brain, and a two-year open innovation program to invest up to $20 million in research and technology to better understand and diagnose traumatic brain injury.

The Head Health Initiative will include two Challenge topics:

  • Challenge I: Methods for Diagnosis and Prognosis of Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Challenge 2: The Mechanics of Injury: Innovative Approaches For Preventing And Identifying Brain Injuries.

In Challenge I, GE and the NFL will award up to $10M for two types of solutions: Algorithms and Analytical Tools, and Biomarkers and other technologies. The Head Health Challenge is being hosted in a branded challenge community on NineSights. To begin the submission process, visit www.NFLGEBrainChallenge.com.
