Gamify Your PhD, Wellcome Trust

The 'Gamify Your PhD' competition aims to put researchers in the role of games designer, as a new way to communicate their research findings.

Researchers in biomedical sciences or medical humanities are invited to send game ideas based on their PhD work. Game development teams will also be involved to explore ways to transform the best ideas into playable video games. The best game that comes out of the hack session will receive further backing to polish it for release.

The competition is open to those currently engaged in a PhD in biomedical sciences or medical humanities, or who have completed one within the past three years.

Small teams of game developers are also sought to help our chosen researchers bring their game ideas to life.
