Boonsri Srinivasan created a mini-documentary of the NF2 Hackathon event we organized in San Francisco – called “Hacking a Cure”. If you weren’t there, the video gives you a taste of the atmosphere and level of commitment everybody has to work on finding better solutions for a rare disease. Read more about the event here.

This short documentary is about NF2 patient Onno Faber (also an entrepreneur), who organized a hackathon to find better treatment options using his genetic data. Over 100 machine learning experts and scientists gathered over a weekend and presented their projects at the end of the 48 hour event – Boonsri Srinivasan
