Semi-Finalist Presentations are Today!

Today, the five semi-finalists will convene at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey to present their Round 2 Submissions of designs for ResearchKit studies. The Mood Challenge judges will score each team based on the Challenge criteria and two finalists will be selected to receive $100,000 to develop their designs into prototypes to pilot with iPhone users.

Over the past six weeks, the semi-finalists participated in the Virtual Accelerator, which kicked off with a two-day in-person Boot Camp featuring experts in ResearchKit, iOS UX/UI, medical research, and psychology. Teams have been hard at work since Boot Camp, engaging our mentors as they’ve progressed their initial proposals into designs for ResearchKit studies.

Today’s opening remarks will be made by Steve Downs, Chief Technology and Strategy Officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Sara Holoubek, CEO and Founder of Luminary Labs, among others.

Follow along on Twitter and stay tuned for the finalist announcement next month!
