2017 Competition

On February 25, 2017, 20 teams from across the United States competed on the theme of New Delivery Methods in Immunotherapy. Given the recent attention and resources put into the Cancer Moonshot, immunotherapy has been one of the most promising avenues of tackling cancer. Working in close collaboration with experts at the Jackson Laboratory and Jaan Elias, director of case study research at the Yale School of Management, the Yale SOM team developed a case that challenged teams to conceive novel and new ideas in the delivery of immunotherapies.

The 2017 competition was sponsored by The Jackson Laboratory, QuintilesIMS, and Dilworth IP.

The winning teams were:

  • 1st Place: Rutgers Business School, Rutgers University
