    NIH Challenge Encourages Development of Hand-Held Devices for Disease Diagnosis

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    To spur the development of noninvasive, hand-held, digital technologies to detect, diagnose, and guide therapies for diseases with high global and public health impact, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched a Technology Accelerator Challenge that will award $1 million in prizes. The challenge is focused on sickle cell disease, malaria, and anemia and is led by NIH’s National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB).

    The NIH challenge is designed to stimulate the development of a platform technology that could be used to rapidly screen large populations as well as provide physicians with a practical tool for optimizing therapy in individual patients.

    “While this challenge is not…
