Preparations are underway for a new hackathon focused on health and technology.
The first edition of MedHacks will be held Oct. 2-4 at the Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy on the JHU Homewood Campus.
The event is being run by students, and looks to bring in industry experts and clinicians to help innovate. Teams will have 36 hours to create solutions.
A release says the students are looking to draw on Johns Hopkins’ renowned place in the biomedical world, and will no doubt benefit from the university’s increasing focus on fostering startups.
