ONE MIND is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to benefiting all affected by brain illness and injury through fostering fundamental changes that will radically accelerate the development and implementation of improved diagnostics, treatments, and cures; while eliminating the stigma. One Mind believes in Open Science Principles and creates global public-private partnerships between governmental, corporate, scientific, and philanthropic communities.
Summary of relevant work
PROJECT APOLLO - A knowledge data portal for brain research based on open science principles.
One Mind is leading the development of the Apollo Data Exchange Portal that will support collaboration around information and data gathered from TRACK-TBI, CENTER-TBI, and the PatientsLikeMe PTS and TBI online communities. This will be completed through the use of integrated open analysis tools, such as tranSMART, and provenance tracking systems (e.g. the SAGE Synapse platform) for working with complex data. Using open source tools such as tranSMART, curated clinical and outcomes data, neuroimaging, and molecular measures can be integrated to provide a community-driven analytics platform for collaborative translational biomedical research. This information will be available to research partners who agree to follow open science principles.
PROJECT GEMINI - A pilot program established to demonstrate that the support of large research studies for diseases and injuries of the brain, in concert with One Mind’s Open Science Principles; will greatly accelerate the discovery of better diagnostics, treatments, and someday, cures. Our inaugural supported projects, Track-TBI and Center-TBI, are clinical studies for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS), whose databases will be available to all researchers and of particular value to those researching diseases and injuries sharing similar biological characteristics. These projects will serve as proof of our Open Science Principles, and establish the framework for additional One Mind partnerships in other brain diseases.
