  • Translating questions into solutions & crowds into communities

Designed and run by a community of researchers from a variety of organizations, DREAM Challenges invite participants to propose solutions to fundamental biomedical questions — fostering collaboration and building communities in the process. Sage Bionetworks provides the expertise and infrastructure to host challenges via their Synapse platform. Together, we share a vision allowing individuals and groups to collaborate openly so that the “wisdom of the crowd” provides the greatest impact on science and human health.

If you have an idea for a DREAM challenge, please contact us here.

Register NOW for DREAM Challenges and EPIDEMIUM@RECOMB in Paris 2018

Registration is open for DREAM Challenges and EPIDEMIUM@RECOMB April 19-20.   The meeting will focus on proteogenomics, single cell systems biology and cancer epidemiology, and how crowdsourced science, data sharing and a culture of collaboration can help advance research in these fields. We will highlight the solutions of the top performing strategies in the Epidemium program in cancer epidemiology and the recent NCI-CPTAC Proteogenomics DREAM Challenge. We will also brainstorm as a community on the possibility of organizing a DREAM challenge on Single Cell Systems Biology, and have a RAMP Challenge Hands on Session.  The RAMP challenge will be divided into an initial individual phase followed by a collaborative phase of discussion. Solutions will be shown instantly in a leaderboard. Ensemble predictions will also be performed during the RAMP workshop.  Pre-Sign up for RAMP Session.  (30 participants needed to preregister to reserve the session.)  (Learn more)
