Better Science Together

Home

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.

Featured Projects


The Agora platform is an interactive, web-based tool that allows researchers to share and explore curated genomic analyses of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Agora hosts a list of over a hundred nascent drug targets for AD that were nominated by AD researchers as part of the National Institute on Aging’s Accelerating Medicines Partnership-Alzheimer’s Disease (AMP-AD) research program.
There is a high barrier to entry for researchers hoping to deploy mobile-health technologies effectively and at scale. Through the Sage Digital Health Catalyst Program, we are helping to bootstrap innovative research projects. After several rounds of judging and a pitch session, we are pleased to announce the winners of the competition: UW CREATIV Lab's Brighten App and UCSF's LetSync app.
UCSF and Sage Bionetworks are collaborating on 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.

There is a gap between translating privacy principles and legislation to guide how engineers and designers create the technology products that are used by billion of end users. How might we reimagine meaningful, informed consent for sharing personal data? How does civil society, practitioners, and policymakers frame privacy and privacy through design? What interventions are [...]

By Nancy Kass Ethics is an essential consideration for any research initiative that collects, uses, or reuses human data or samples. In data activities of these types, ethics concerns – whether raised by institutional review boards (IRBs) tasked with reviewing projects, or in the published literature – seem to focus almost entirely on questions of [...]
