About Neuro Nexus

Neuro Nexus is a Calgary-based, multidisciplinary hackathon program that aims to bridge multidisciplinary divides to address challenges in care for neurological and mental health disorders, and accelerate the translation of research to impact. The program occurs over 6 weeks between March 28-May 13. Pitch Day is the first of 3 key events where participants get to network with other innovators, learn about real-world challenges and form a team. Neuro Nexus is based on the Health Hack Competition from Innovation 4 Health.
