Announcing the Opening of the DREAM ALS Stratification Prize4Life Challenge

We are pleased to announce that the DREAM ALS Stratification Prize4Life Challenge, the first of the DREAM10 Challenges is now open for participation.

This Challenge focuses on predicting the progression and survival of ALS patients. The Challenge will leverage the PRO-ACT database of more than 8,000 cases as the Challenge training set, and feature several unpublished datasets that will be used for model validation. To learn more and join this Challenge, go to: https://www.synapse.org/#!Synapse:syn2873386/wiki/

Besides joining the ALS Stratification Challenge, we hope you will also pre-register for one or both of the two other DREAM10 Challenges that are currently under preparation. In this way, we can keep you informed about the readiness of these two additional DREAM10 Challenges for participation. Also below, we've also included a current snapshot of the DREAM9.5 Challenges that opened this past winter.
