(478d) Sage Bio Networks-Searching for Mutual Incentives: The Sweet Spot for Collaboration

Bot, B., Sage Bionetworks
This talk will explore case studies that look at different models of collaboration and issues to consider when working in a decentralized landscape. Sage Bionetworks is a nonprofit biomedical research and technology development organization that was founded in Seattle in 2009. Our focus is to develop and apply open practices to data-driven research for the advancement of human health. Data-driven research has become an important component of biomedicine, but it’s not always easy to understand how to apply computational approaches appropriately or how to interpret their results.Our interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers work together to provide researchers access to technology tools and scientific approaches to share data, benchmark methods, and explore collective insights, all backed by Sage’s gold-standard governance protocols and commitment to user-centered design.
