Followed by three 24-hour online challenges:
26th Feb – 27th Feb:
Stall Catchers challenge: Stall Catchers is a citizen science game speeding up Alzheimer’s research. In the game, you’re analyzing movies from a live mouse brain, and looking for signs of stalls – clogged blood vessels.
28th Feb – 1st March:
Mark2Cure challenge: Mark2Cure is a citizen platform that enables volunteers to help in the process of biomedical discovery. Volunteers extract information from biomedical abstracts in order to help researchers find clues on a rare disease known as NGLY1-deficiency.
2nd March – 3rd March:
Cochrane Crowd challenge: Cochrane Crowd is a citizen science platform which aims at identifying studies that provide the best possible evidence of the effectiveness of a health treatment. Once identified by the Crowd the studies go into a central register where health researchers and practitioners can access them.
