Who We Are
Our mission: Sage Bionetworks is a nonprofit that uses open practices to speed the translation of science to medicine.
Sage Bionetworks is a nonprofit health research organization that was founded in Seattle in 2009. We use open practices that increase the reliability of scientific claims to speed the translation of science to medicine. We support responsible data sharing, objective evaluation of methods and results across researchers, and the empowerment of participants to be active partners in research. Sage is a 501c3 and is supported through a portfolio of competitive research grants, commercial partnerships, and philanthropic contributions.
Sage embraces diversity, equity and inclusion. We offer a comprehensive benefits package, including relocation benefits, to bring the right talent to the team. We are based in Seattle, WA, and collaborate broadly throughout the world.Learn About Our Values
Our Perspective on Research and Open Science
Innovations in digital technology expand the means by which researchers can collect data, create algorithms, and make scientific inferences. The potential benefit is enormous: we can develop scientific knowledge more quickly and precisely. But there are risks. These new capabilities do not, by themselves, create reliable scientific insights; researchers can easily run afoul of data rights, misuse data and algorithms, and get lost in a sea of potential resources; and the larger scientific community can barricade themselves into silos of particular interests.
Improving discovery and innovation though the sharing of data and code requires new forms of practice, refined through real world experience. Science is a practice of collective sense-making, and updates to our tools demand updates to our sense-making practices.Read Full Article
