  • Dream Challenges pose fundamental questions about systems biology and translational science

DREAM Challenges pose fundamental questions about systems biology and translational medicine. Designed and run by a community of researchers from a variety of organizations, our challenges invite participants to propose solutions — fostering collaboration and building communities in the process. Expertise and institutional support are provided by Sage Bionetworks, along with the 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.

Winners in the DREAM Parkinson’s Disease Digital Biomarker Challenge Announced

Sage Bionetworks in Collaboration with The Michael J. Fox Foundation Announce Winners in the DREAM Parkinson’s Disease Digital Biomarker Challenge. Sage Bionetworks announced today the results of the Parkinson’s Disease Digital Biomarker (PDDM) DREAM challenge, an open crowd-sourced research project designed to benchmark the use of remote sensors to diagnose and track Parkinson’s disease (PD). The winners of this Challenge developed methods that are 38% better than previous models at detecting Parkinson’s disease from a simple walk and balance test (read more)

New DREAM Video

Calling all DREAMers…  The DREAM team is developing a video project about DREAM and our community, and needs your help.  We need Selfies of you holding signs that say either  “DREAM Challenges”  or “DREAM” or “Wisdom of the Crowd” .  Take a sheet of white unlined copier paper and write as big as you can with a marker (so it is legible).  You can take one selfie with one message or three.   Then we will include them in the video of our community of DREAMers adding to the Wisdom of the Crowd.  (12/6/17 – Thanks for your help.. this is done.. Please see video on the DREAM home page or on Youtube – https://youtu.be/PrAA-DnTQ7w)

DREAM Challenge Community competition launches to learn how to use smartphone and wearable sensors to monitor health

Recent advances in mobile health have demonstrated great potential to leverage sensor-based technologies for remote monitoring of health and disease – particularly for diseases affecting motor function such as Parkinson’s. While there are many projects that have successfully collected sensor data from people in the real-world setting, researchers still have a poor understanding of what the data can tell us about health.
