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.

By Lara Mangravite and John Wilbanks Open science is an umbrella term used by many people to represent a diverse set of research methods designed to increase the speed, value, and reproducibility of scientific output. In general, these approaches work to achieve their goals through increased sharing of research assets or transparency in research methods. [...]

By Titus Brown In my view, open science fundamentally depends on tools, infrastructure and practice for making the research process more open, transparent, and reproducible. Any progress on the open tooling and open practices front (almost) invariably redounds to the larger benefit of open science, and thus science more generally. So at the recent Critical [...]

By Brian Nosek Much of the open science movement focuses on improving transparency and accessibility of the contents and outputs of research -- papers, data, code, and research materials. The benefits of increasing openness of such resources to advancing science is easy to comprehend. For example, if the literature were more accessible, then science would [...]
