Five Cancer Diagnostics Innovators Win Funding from GE's 00 Million Healthymagination Challenge

Let the disruption begin! In September, at an event launching GE's billion dollar global campaign against cancer, a panel of health care innovators, venture capitalists and Silicon Valley luminaries discussed how to disrupt the way cancer diagnosis currently works and improve patient outcomes. It wasn't just talk. GE backed up the conversation with the new 00 million healthymagination challenge, an open innovation challenge to find and fund the best new ideas for improving breast cancer detection and diagnosis.

The healthcare community listened. In just nine weeks, cancer researchers and innovators from more than 200 academic and other institutions from 40 countries submitted over 500 ideas. Today in San Francisco, GE announced the first five winners of the innovation award. They will each receive 00,000 in seed money to fund further research, as well as access and mentoring by GE researchers and leading industry innovators.
