Better Science Together


We Believe

We are in the midst of a digital revolution that is redefining medicine. New ways to gather, store and use health data are developed every day. It is not always clear how to use these new approaches. At Sage Bionetworks, we believe that we can learn more by learning from each other. We partner with researchers, patients, and healthcare innovators to drive collaborative data-driven science to improve health. We advance biomedicine by making science more open, collaborative, and inclusive.

Current at Sage

UCSF and Sage Bionetworks announce My BP Lab, a research app designed to help study participants track their blood pressure and stress levels using new sensors included on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones. The study, developed collaboratively by UCSF and Sage Bionetworks, marks the groundbreaking use of a smartphone sensor capable of measuring body signals for blood pressure estimation, and is open for enrollment to the general public.
Sage Bionetworks, in a broad partnership led by OHSU, has been awarded the new CTSA Program National Center for Data to Health (CD2H). This award will coalesce and coordinate informatics activities across the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program, a network of more than 50 medical research institutions, to provide collaborative clinical and translational research infrastructure.
As part of the most ambitious medical research program in the history of American medicine, The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and its partners including Sage Bionetworks have received an initial award of $20M for their role in President Obama’s national All of Us Research Program. This landmark longitudinal research effort will leverage smart phones and other personal technologies to engage one million or more U.S. participants to improve the ability to prevent and treat disease based on individual differences in lifestyle, environment and genetics.
As part of the Coding4Cancer (C4C) initiative, Sage has partnered with DREAM Challenges and support from The Laura and John Arnold Foundation to host the Digital Mammography Challenge where researchers are using de-identified digital images and clinical datasets to develop predictive models to help reduce the recall rate in breast cancer screening. The Competitive phase has ended and the top-performing teams are now working together in the Community Phase to further refine prediction algorithms that can ultimately be used in routine clinical practice. The top-performing teams will co-author a paper highlighting the challenge results and team methodologies later this year.
