Invites Applications for Projects to Address Healthcare Needs of Veterans

Johnson & Johnson Innovation, together with Johnson & Johnson Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, is inviting applications for the Veterans Lead QuickFire Challenge series.

According to the company, a 2021 report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found that veterans are significantly more likely to develop multiple chronic health conditions in their lifetime such as hypertension, arthritis, and cancer compared to non-veterans. To help treat wounded warriors and keep the military community healthy, the company is focused on identifying and advancing solutions with the potential to help address their medical needs.

To that end, innovators are invited to submit potentially ground-breaking ideas that aim to directly address the military community’s healthcare needs, including cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, oncology, orthopedic and musculoskeletal disease, physical trauma management, respiratory health, and vision loss. The innovator(s) with the best idea, technology, or potential solution will receive up to $250,000 in grant funding, access to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS ecosystem, and mentorship from experts across the Johnson & Johnson family of companies.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Johnson & Johnson Innovation website.

Deadline: September 17, 2021
