The MI4 Innovation Prize, sponsored by MI4, is one of three prizes in this year’s McGill Clinical Innovation Competition (CLIC). The prize aims to support innovative solutions that focus on infectious and immune threats to human health. One winning team was selected this week amongst the 12 submissions, by the McGill Clinical Innovation Competition panelists. Read about the winning team below!
ANTIBIOTIC SENTINEL: Choosing the right antibiotic to treat a life-threatening bacterial infection is essential to patient care. Antibiotic sentinel is a web-based application that provides up-to-the-minute information to help doctors select the best antibiotic to maximize the chance of curing an infection while minimizing harmful side effects. This novel tool will immediately aid the care of patients presenting with serious bacterial infections and eventually learn to predict them. (Todd C. Lee, Emily G. McDonald, Louis Mullie, Jonathan Hershon, Christophe Marois)
Special mention also goes out to the STOP MALARIA team - finalists for the MI4 Innovation Prize, the Hakim Family Innovation Prize and the the Marika Zelenka Roy Innovation Prize.
