— Our Challenges

Our challenges are real business questions predominantly from the field of Personalised Healthcare (PHC) that need to be answered to do now what patients need next. PHC describes the vision of Roche to ensure that the screening, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases will more quickly and effectively transform the lives of people around the globe – enabling the right treatment for the right patient at the right time. Therefore, it is key to bring together a unique understanding of human biology with new ways to analyse health data.

Stay curious: There will be new challenges posted in October 2021. In the meantime, please feel free to share your own ideas with us via our Greenfield Challenge.
