The Gray Foundation

The Gray Foundation "Team Science" philanthropic initiative funds a network of researchers to study new approaches for the early detection, diagnosis, and therapy of BRCA-related cancers.

The Gray Foundation research teams feature experts in BRCA-related breast and ovarian cancers, with primary institutional affiliations that include Harvard Medical School, Weill Cornell Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, the Cleveland Clinic, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Over ten other institutions are contributing as part of these teams. Extremely diverse data are being generated; the aims encompass genomic, epigenomic, metagenomic, imaging, functional, proteomic, as well as some preliminary clinical trial data.

Sage manages this network in partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), who will implement the data and analysis portals to share the research results. In addition to providing the platform and bioinformatics support for data management, Sage coordinates the working groups that support data governance and clinical harmonization.
