Pitt Innovation Challenge finalist showcase moves online

The Pitt Innovation Challenge (PInCh) is getting innovative to showcase the nine finalists who will divide six $25,000 and three $100,000 awards.

PInCh is a competition supported by Pitt’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) to generate innovative solutions to challenging health problems by mitigating risk and providing financial and administrative support to move ideas forward. 

Normally, the PInCh final event involves the teams pitching their innovations live to a panel of judges, during an evening of networking on the Oakland campus. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the first-ever virtual PInCh event at noon Oct. 14 on YouTube.

The nine finalists are featured on the CTSI website with individual project pages, where viewers can submit feedback and comments, particularly if they have a contact or a resource that may be helpful to the teams. Project pages can be viewed here.
