Brain Health Hack announced

On March 23-25, Chronic Brain Injury, a focus area of Discovery Themes, is co-sponsoring a student hackathon event – the Brain Health Hack – to develop neurotechnology solutions for brain injury and health.  

Organizers are seeking help to recruit participants, faculty mentors, judges, and sponsors.

"We want undergraduate and graduate students to form multidisciplinary teams and competitively design, build, and demonstrate projects. Winning teams will receive prizes and have the opportunity to present their work at the 2018 Global Brain Health & Performance Summit to an international pool of neurotechnology-focused researchers, companies, and investors. The event will be held on campus and intends to promote student innovation and the interdisciplinary culture of Ohio State," Kedar Hiremath said, program manager.

Join Ohio State’s neuroscience community for the first Brain Health Hack - a weekend of building and creating real projects to help address various brain health and performance research and clinical needs - hosted by the Stanley D. and Joan H. Ross Center for Brain Health and Performance, Ohio State’s Neurological Research Institute, and Ohio State’s Chronic Brain Injury Discovery Theme.

Undergraduate and graduate students from any discipline are invited to design, build, and demonstrate projects to a live audience of students, faculty, and representatives from both the health care and tech industry. Teams can compete for prizes through sponsored challenges in VR and mobile solutions or can develop their own project. 

To learn more, visit the information session on February 2 at the Ohio Union from 12pm-2pm or visit the Brain Health Hack website.
