"The Truth of Personalized Medicine: Our Commons Future"


Sage Bionetworks is grateful to the following organizations for their ongoing support of Sage Bionetworks and its initiatives including the Commons Congress:

Life Science Discovery Fund

The Life Sciences Discovery Fund supports innovative research in Washington state to promote life sciences competitiveness, enhance economic vitality, and improve health and health care.

NCI Integrative Cancer Biology Program

The National cancer Institute’s Integrative Cancer Biology Program (ICBP)  focuses on the analysis of cancer as a complex biological system. A cornerstone of the program is the development and implementation of computational models of processes relevant to cancer prevention, diagnostics and therapeutics. The integration of experimental biology with mathematical modeling provides new insights in the biology and new approaches to the management of cancer.

Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati

Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is the premier legal advisor to technology and growth enterprises worldwide, as well as the investment banks and venture capital firms that finance them.


Inspire2Live is the international movement behind charity events like Alpe d’HuZes, currently Holland’s biggest charity action (20M Euros) and many others, such as the Belgian Ven2-4Cancer. All these charities are targeted towards a single goal: Getting Cancer in control within 10 years.

Open Network Biology

Open Network Biology is an open access journal which publishes articles relating to predictive, network-based models of living systems linked to the corresponding coherent data sets upon which the models are based, enabling a broad readership to evolve the models towards a more complete understanding of complex phenotypes. In addition to articles describing these large data sets, the journal also welcomes submissions of original research, software and methods, along with reviews and commentary, relevant to the emerging field of network biology.


Traitwise’s mission is to develop interconnected communities of people answering questions that will advance human healthcare.Traitwise has developed revolutionary technology to investigate the unexpected correlations between our health, our unique distinguishing traits, and our lifestyles.


Ashoka envisions an Everyone A Changemaker™ world. A world that responds quickly and effectively to social challenges, and where each individual has the freedom, confidence and societal support to address any social problem and drive change. Ashoka strives to shape a global, entrepreneurial, competitive citizen sector: one that allows social entrepreneurs to thrive and enables the world’s citizens to think and act as changemakers.


Ingenuity Systems is taking on the challenge of next-generation knowledge management for the life sciences community. Our long-term focus on innovation in semantic search, ontology, and software development has allowed us to create groundbreaking technologies that help life science researchers more effectively search, explore, visualize, and analyze biological and chemical findings related to genes, proteins, and small molecules.
