To spur new medical discoveries we must transform the way research is conducted, drawing on the wisdom and insights of patients—the people most familiar with disease—and the data they collect about their health.
With support from RWJF, Sage Bionetworks is building BRIDGE, a web-based, open-sourced platform that allows patients to share and track their health data, and collaborate with researchers and, potentially, fellow citizen scientists on research into diseases and health problems that matter most to them.
Sage Bionetworks will pilot three research projects on the BRIDGE platform, focusing on diabetes, Fanconi anemia and sleeping disorders.
