Life Science Nation (LSN)’s 2-day Longevity, Health & Innovation (LHI) digital partnering conference took place March 18-19. We are very excited to announce the Top Winners of each Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC) session. As the popularity grows for LHI IPC, we had three sessions featuring Therapeutics, Medical Devices & Diagnostics, and Digital Health companies. Attendees voted for their favorite companies based on materials available on the companies’ dedicated webpages, as well as their live pitch and Q&A.

Thank you to each IPC company for participating and sharing your technology and story with the LHI community. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all for voting!

Session 2 (Digital Health) Winner

LifeBio is an age-tech company that captures individuals’ life stories and increases social connectedness— to enhance mental health and to improve Alzheimer’s care.

Session 3 (Medical Devices & Diagnostics) Winner

Eye movements offer a window into brain health. neuroFit licensed a NASA-developed oculometric technology co-invented by one of our founders that delivers eye-movement-based metrics, some well-known from physiology (e.g., latency, acceleration, gain) and other more modern sensorimotor metrics (e.g., direction noise, speed tuning) distilled into a summary metric, nFit. Compared to biomarkers from imaging and EEG, oculometric approaches require only a visual display and a well-designed tracking system to yield noninvasive, low-cost biomarkers that can be scaled on consumer devices.

If you’re interested in the next upcoming Innovator’s Pitch Challenge, you can apply for the Digital RESI IPC taking place June 8-10. Applications close May 14!
