RADx Innovation Challenge cohort of May 15, 2017
THE RADx entrepreneurial business incubator initiative at Vanderbilt University announced the field of business concepts and initiatives that were formally unveiled during a May 25 Pitch competition.
Here is more information about the 17 teams recently recognized.
Winning teams received $10,000 business development awards from the Evelyn Selby Stead Fund for Innovation:
► CrowdRad (Martin Jordanov, Isaac Osei and others) - A web/mobile application allowing radiologists to post challenging unknown cases and obtain independent answers from his/her peers around the world.
► RAD3D (Sumit Pruthi and others) - 3D printing of customized continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) masks for children with craniofacial abnormalities.
► Note: RADx also announced that an initial RADx participant -- Not an Emergency, led by Anne-Marie Danko and others -- had after the start of the RADxprocess separately secured undisclosed VUMC support for its proposal, which is designed to reduce emergency department volumes. The team, thus, did not compete on May 25, but was recognized during the program.

► Brain Trauma Marker (Aashim Bhatia and others) - A novel multidisciplinary approach to clinical biomarker discovery in traumatic brain injury
► ORtrack (Jim Fiechtl and others) - A secure physician and patient communication tool for promoting operating room efficiency and patient engagement.
