RG Launches 2015 BeHEARD Competition

RG is pleased to announce the BeHEARD (Helping Empower and Accelerate Research Discoveries) challenge, a science competition aiming to accelerate personalized rare disease research. BeHEARD is open globally to researchers, foundations, or anyone whose idea is constrained due to limited resources. Families with a child afflicted with a rare disease will have the opportunity to work with a network of academic researchers to develop research proposals tailored to their child’s needs.
Partnering with 18 life-science technology companies, we have gathered over $600,000 in cutting-edge technologies and over 40 premium prizes for rare disease researchers to apply for. The prizes include custom mouse models, bioinformatics analysis software, drug repositioning service, gene editing cell lines, and many more. We invite you to explore the BeHEARD website in depth to learn more about how to apply for this year’s science competition.
