Novel Treatment Approaches to Cure Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
TAGS: Nature, Chemistry, Life Sciences, Ideation
AWARD: $10,000 USD | DEADLINE: 2/16/15 | ACTIVE SOLVERS: 21 | POSTED: 12/16/14
The Seeker for this Challenge desires proposals describing potential approaches for curing Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The Seeker is interested in novel mechanisms of action that specifically address the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). These may include, but are not limited to, approaches targeting or modulating the microbiota, metabolism, genetic, and epigenetic targets. Platforms may involve, but are not limited to, vaccines, gene therapy, and small molecule compounds. The Seeker is not interested in immunosuppression. Desirable approaches are specifically relevant to the pathogenesis of IBD and can be translated into a cure.
This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution. In addition to the Challenge award, the Seeker is open to establishing potential collaborations with the winning Solver(s) to further investigate proposed mechanisms with the eventual goal of developing a cure for IBD.

The Seeker for this Challenge desires proposals for novel approaches that specifically address the causes of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) to enable the development of a cure. The Seeker is interested in unique ideas and new approaches (including gene delivery techniques), but is not interested in approaches that are simply common targets for various immunological conditions. That is, the approach must be specifically relevant to the pathogenesis of IBD and can be translated into a cure.
