What is Pulmonary fibrosis?
Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a family of related lung diseases characterized by scarring in lung tissue. Over time, the scarring can make it difficult for oxygen to get into the blood. About one third of people are misdiagnosed for well over a year before reaching a PF diagnosis — and once they do, treatment options are limited.
The challenge asks innovators to submit solutions that address one or a combination of the following tracks:
1. Advance PF disease awareness and improve time to diagnosis
2. Preserve health and improve care for PF patients
