NCATS invites innovators to learn more about the NCATS ASPIRE Design Challenges for Translational Innovation in Pain, Opioid Use Disorder, and Overdose. The goal of the ASPIRE Challenges is to reward and spur innovative and catalytic approaches towards solving the opioid crisis through development of:
- novel chemistries;
- data-mining and analysis tools and technologies; and
- biological assays that will revolutionize discovery, development and pre-clinical testing of next generation, safer and non-addictive analgesics to treat pain, as well as new treatments for opioid use disorder (OUD) and overdose.
Solutions must be submitted to Challenge.gov by NOON Eastern Time on May 31, 2019.
