From the GMR: NLM Show Off Your Apps: Innovative Uses of NLM Information Challenge

Hello, GMR Members,

Have a nifty idea to help people find health information they need?

The NLM Show Off Your Apps: Innovative Uses of NLM Information Challenge is an initiative of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This Challenge is open to individuals, teams of individuals, and organizations (collectively, "Entrants"). The purpose of this contest is to develop innovative software applications to further NLM's mission of aiding the dissemination and exchange of scientific and other information pertinent to medicine and public health. Eligible software applications must make use of NLM's vast collection of biomedical data including downloadable data sets, APIs (application programming interfaces), and/or software tools.

Read more about it and submit your idea here: http://challenge.gov/challenges/132.

The submission period starts today and goes until August 31, 2011.

Good luck!
