CSL Plasma Offering $40,000 for Breakthrough Ideas to Help Plasma Shortage


Immunoglobulin (Ig) replacement therapy company, CSL Plasma, has sent out a challenge to help them with their plasma supply--offering $40,000 and mentorship to the person or team who can help. They are partnering with Australian start-up incubator Cicada Innovations. 

With the ongoing plasma supply shortage, which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, CSL Plasma wants to enhance its current processes to collect more Ig from every liter of donated plasma. 

To win, individuals or team entrants only need to have a good idea. There is no requirement for the idea to be a fully functioning product. Applications close on May 25.
