The 2015 CRACK IT Challenges competition consists of two Challenges identified jointly by the NC3Rs and Sponsors:
The CRACK IT scheme is a challenge-led competition that funds collaborations between industry, academics and SMEs to solve business and scientific ‘Challenges’ which if solved will deliver 3Rs and commercial benefits, either by improving business processes or developing a commercialisable product.
The latest challenges are:
Challenge 20: Metaboderm: Development of a new tool to predict metabolism in human skin.
Challenge 21: InMutaGene: Development of a technology to address the risks of insertional mutagenesis/oncogenesis and to improve the efficiency of translational research in gene therapy.
This year the competition is funded by the NC3Rs and supported by Innovate UK, Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) with in-kind contribution from the Sponsors.
