Deadline: 2018-12-31 Award: $1,000,000 Open to: Everyone*
New Organ's goal is to ensure no one dies from lack of a healthy organ. The New Organ Liver Prize is our first step toward that goal.
The competition will be judged by a panel of five to seven independent, highly-qualified experts. We're in the process of forming the judging committee, which will be solely responsible for evaluating compliance with all prize guidelines and rules, and will have final authority in awarding the prize.
The award of $1,000,000 will go to the first team that creates a regenerative or bioengineered solution that keeps a large animal alive for 90 days without native liver function. Future challenge prizes will cover additional whole organs.
