Prize4Life was founded by a group of Harvard Business School students, including an ALS patient, who believe that prizes will act as powerful incentives to accelerate ALS research. Please consider supporting our efforts and/or volunteering some of your time.
Prize4Life's mission is to accelerate the discovery of treatments and a cure for ALS by using powerful incentives to attract new people and drive innovation.
Patients first. Avichai Kremer, one of the Harvard Business School students who founded Prize4Life, was diagnosed with ALS in 2004. We therefore know the disease firsthand and have a sense of urgency to find a treatment. We value patients and their viewpoints. Patients, please tell us what you think.
Global awareness. We plan to push ALS to the forefront of fatal disease issues. We need your help in order to do this. Get involved.
New people & new ideas. We believe the solutions to the ALS problems may reside in the minds and laboratories of people who are not currently researching the disease. Our platform is a bridge for reaching these people. Enter the competition.
Results. Research is traditionally funded upfront, before an idea is even tested. Our prize model ensures that only clear research results, vetted by a team of scientific advisors, are rewarded.
