World Without Disease QuickFire Challenge



At Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Janssen Research & Development, our goal is to improve the health and wellness of people around the world. To that end, we have a passionate and engaged workforce across our consumer, medical device and pharmaceutical units who are interested in finding and deploying comprehensive, end to end, integrated solutions which take into account the world in which we live today. Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Janssen Research & Development are bringing together the consumer, medical device and pharmaceutical sectors to award a prize or a series of prizes to the person or team(s) who submits the best idea, technology, or solution that will address a critical health need for the world's population. Please check out our areas of interest, with an emphasis on lung cancer and metabolism.

Solutions will be evaluated based on their ability to meet the following criteria:

  • Address a particular cohort with a critical unmet medical need in Johnson & Johnson’s strategic areas of interest, such as lung cancer and metabolic diseases;
  • Integrate a novel approach that combines pharmaceutical, devices and/or consumer health solutions
  • Address part or all of the spectrum of prevention, interception and cure
  • Outline how the award would help them reach a critical milestone within the timeframe of a single year and provide a full “time-to-market” plan for their solution.
