Early Detection of Cancer Challenge

$2-million cancer diagnostics challenge

Jason Pincock DynaLIFE CEO


Health Innovation

A $2-million cancer diagnostics challenge that brings together government, funding and expertise and private industry. The sponsors will partner with start-ups under a challenge that includes resources, expertise and funding to accelerate their development in area of cancer diagnosis.

How they are changing the world

The lift that is needed in order to bring a health product to patients in Alberta and an international healthcare market often feels insurmountable. This is an opportunity to bring key partners together to help accelerate and empower an Alberta based health pioneer to bring their innovation to life.

Why Edmonton?

Edmonton was built by entrepreneurs taking risks for the better of their community and eventually their province. Alberta has invested in a health system that is one of the most integrated in the world and has the unique ability to enable that platform to serve Albertans beyond simple delivery of health services. It is a resource as rich as the oilsands, but lacking exploration.

What does the future look like?

This model for collaboration combines the practical knowledge of health care delivery, with the innovation capital needed to create an environment that contains the financial support to move forward with the operational guidance productively. The future? We hope this is the first of many of these collaborations in Edmonton’s new Health City.

“Health innovation in Edmonton (and Alberta) is as rich as the oilsands, but lacking exploration.”
