We are excited to invite you to join the first team competition of Stall Catchers – an online game that crowdsources real Alzheimer’s research – and increase your organization’s exposure via the accompanying media campaign and the premiere of The Crowd & The Cloud public television documentary series on April 6th.
What is this about?
We are searching for a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and for the first time in history YOU can help hands-on. Together with collaborators at Cornell, Berkeley, and Princeton, and with support from the BrightFocus Foundation, the Human Computation Institute has created the first citizen science project to fight Alzheimer’s – EyesOnALZ. Our online game – Stall Catchers – is enlisting the help of public volunteers to speed up real scientific research for the first time.
How can YOU help?
Our project – EyesOnALZ – is about to run its first Stall Catchers team competition and YOU can be part of it. The month-long competition will kick off on April 6th, immediately following the National Public Television premiere of The Crowd & The Cloud (crowdandcloud.org). This new mini-series about citizen science features EyesOnALZ & Stall Catchers in its first episode, and was created by one of the producers of the original COSMOS series with Carl Sagan!
We invite YOU and your organization to create a team on Stall Catchers, play the game and compete for one month with other organizations that want to cure Alzheimer’s!
