About This Event

Bridging the Gap between Life Science and Software

LifeSci Hack is Austin’s first-ever bio-hackathon and we’re focusing on 4 core pain-points felt by those in the life science community:

1. Interoperability

Tracking of information between software.

2. Big Data

Dealing with large scientific data data for implementation and analysis.

3. Life Science Tools

Software package tools for the life science community.

4. BioEducation

More robust educational tools for the life science community.

We want to highlight the benefits of collaborating together across experiences and industries from patient care to biotechnology research. We plan to build active, helpful resources over 3 days at WeWork Austin.

Anyone who has a skill is invited from graphic design to programming to writing. Join us and we’ll feed you while you hack. We’ll have prizes too including SXSW badges and more.
