First, We Gather. Next, We Solve.
Our programming focuses on advancing innovative precision medicine models to accelerate cures.
Driving Data Partnerships Across Oncology
Framing the Data/Technology Landscape
We partnered with PricewaterhouseCoopers to conduct an exhaustive survey of large-scale genomic data sets in the public domain. This is the most comprehensive landscape analysis to date. View landscape (pdf).
Bringing Together the Best-in-Class
In June 2016, we convened 40 of today’s most innovative scientific, business, and technology leaders to solve key challenges in data generation, aggregation and analytics. View the agenda (pdf) and list of attendees (pdf).
Dr. Anthony Philippakis, Chief Data Officer, The Broad Institute
Dr. Barrett Rollins, Chief Scientific Officer, DFCI, Inc.
Margaret Anderson, Executive Director, FasterCures
Dr. Nikhil Wagle and Dr. Corrie Painter, Leaders, Metastatic Breast Cancer Project
In January 2017, we will bring together innovative leaders from across the health care ecosystem to share best practices and identify new ways to drive precision medicine through disruptive innovation and shared value models. Outputs from the meeting will be widely disseminated to maximize impact.
Challenging Teams to Find Solutions
HBS partnered with the Broad Institute and Crowd Innovation Lab to host a series of data challenges to accelerate precision medicine. The crowd-based challenges focus on developing optimal algorithms for faster DNA sequence alignment and optimizing inferred gene expression. View crowdsourcing challenges.
Building New Partnerships & Models
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is the first non-profit organization to share its data with the Genomic Data Commons. The addition of the MMRF CoMMpass dataset, which includes both genomic and clinical data, will help bring the GDC achieve its goal of amassing data from 30,000 patients by year-end. Read the announcement.
Driving DTP Efforts to Enhance Patient Engagement & Data Sharing
Exchanging Best Practices Between DTC Transformers & DTP Organizations
In October 2016, we united today’s most visionary business leaders and healthcare innovators at the Harvard i-Lab. This exciting event explored how DTP and DTC best practices can be applied to precision medicine. View the agenda (pdf), list of attendees (pdf), and key take-aways (pdf) from the meeting.
