BioTarget is a global biotech competition aimed at identifying and supporting those working on new molecules for cancer therapy. Research groups with entrepreneurial ambitions and young biotech companies can submit a proposal by March 29th. The shortlisted candidates will be invited for a pitch event in London, UK, and the three winners will receive free experimentation worth up to $100,000 in Europe’s leading robotic cloud lab to reach their next milestone.

One in two people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. BioTarget is the world’s first biotech competition for emerging companies dedicated to finding new molecules for cancer treatment.
The competition invites applications from early ventures seeking to characterise further or validate their drug targets using cellular and molecular assays. Following the online application, the top 10 applicants will be invited to attend the pitch event in London, where they will present their projects in front of an expert panel and a diverse audience consisting of life science investors, industry professionals, academics, and fellow entrepreneurs.
