Sage Bionetworks Commons Congress

4/19/2013 8:00 AM - 4/20/2013 2:30 PM

The 4th Commons Congress will take place in San Francisco, 19-20 April 2013, around the theme of “The Truth of Personalized Medicine: Our Commons Future”.

Now three years old, Sage Bionetworks is coming into its own in piloting

components needed to build a biomedical research commons. We’ve been

busy – creating computational models of disease, releasing infrastructure for

collaborative data-driven research, and exploring the boundaries of commons-

based governance in health and medicine.

On the way we’ve heard a lot about personalized medicine and what it will

be in the future. We’ve seen some of the progress made by individuals or

single organizations and think it is important we now all consider how we best

address this complex and moveable concept.

This year, the Congress is not going to be about how the public can help us at

Sage Bionetworks. It’s about how we at Sage Bionetworks can help the public

build the commons. We want to engage with organizations and individuals

that are real cornerstones to success in achieving this goal. Within the

congress we will be challenging you to define projects for Sage Bionetworks

to help you take on – clinical studies, modeling challenges, patient community

formation, and more – and we’ll be choosing some of the best to take forward

as core Sage Bionetworks priorities after the Congress.
