The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Biomedical Engineering (NIBIB) is launching the NIH Technology Accelerator Challenge for Maternal Health (NTAC: Maternal Health). The challenge is offering up to $1 million in cash prizes to spur and reward the development of low-cost, point-of-care molecular, cellular, and/or metabolic sensing and diagnostic technologies to guide rapid clinical decision-making, improve patient outcomes, and ultimately prevent maternal morbidity and mortality.
