ALS Biomarker Prize Awards

Prizes Awarded! - Prize4Life Blog - From the press release (PDF) -

InnoCentive, Inc. ... and Prize4Life ... announced that prizes totaling $100,000 will be awarded to two InnoCentive Solvers.
To recognize their significant accomplishments, Prize4Life will honor the recipients at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Seattle, WA.

The two winning solvers have shown significant progress in identifying biomarkers for ALS, but a validated biomarker that meets all of Prize4Life’s stated criteria has yet to be found. Therefore, in commemoration of Prize4Life’s third anniversary, the Prize4Life ALS Biomarker Challenge will reopen May 15, 2009 with a rolling deadline until closing October 2010.
