Consano – Directly Support Medical Research That Matters To You
https://consano.org/

Consano is a platform that enables you to donate any amount (small or large!) directly to a medical research project that matters to you. Usually medical research is paid for by large grants from government or other large funding institutions. Consano is part of a new movement to connect individuals directly to specific medical research projects. By harnessing the power of a crowd, we aggregate donations so the public can directly choose and support high quality medical research, pooling their money with others who care about the same health issues. The Consano platform is: a) Transparent: 100% of your donation goes directly to support the project of your choice. Consano funds its overhead from corporate partnerships, foundation grants, and private donations. You can feel confident that your money is being spent exactly where you intended; b) Directed: You have the power to direct your donation to the project that resonates with you; and c) Connected: Stay informed throughout the lifecycle of your project via regular updates from the researcher. See why others choose to support medical research on our Stories page. Learn about new advances in the health issues that matter to you through articles and discussions posted on our Blog. As we accept new projects, revisit Consano and see how other important projects are looking to advance medical progress. This will be added to Financial Sources Subject Tracer™.

SciStarter – Science We Can Do Together
https://scistarter.com/

SciStarter is the place to find, join, and contribute to science through more than 1600 formal and informal research projects, events and tools. Our database of citizen science projects enables discovery, organization, and greater participation in science. This is also the place to track your conributions, bookmark things you like, and access the tools and instruments needed to get started. Learn more about citizen science and check out these Ten Principles of Citizen Science. SciStarter grew out of Master’s project Darlene Cavalier was working on at the University of Pennsylvania. SciStarter was soon organized as an LLC and in 2014 SciStarter was adopted in part by Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society. With support from the National Science Foundation, Arizona State University’s Center for Engagement and Training in Science and Society and SciStarter created SciStarter 2.0: a) An identity management system and open integrated registration for participants to more easily engage in multiple citizen science projects, even across platforms and disciplines; b) GIS implementation so would-be participants can find opportunities near them; c) Ability for participants to track their projects, contributions, and volunteer hours to science; and d) Participants can create privacy-protected profiles and find people and projects of interest to them.

Broad Institute – Propelling the Understanding and Treatment of Diseases

January 13, 2018

Broad Institute – Propelling the Understanding and Treatment of Diseases
https://www.broadinstitute.org/

Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard was launched in 2004 to improve human health by using genomics to advance our understanding of the biology and treatment of human disease, and to help lay the groundwork for a new generation of therapies. The institute was founded to seize the opportunity that arose from the Human Genome Project the international effort that successfully deciphered the entire human genetic code. Despite that accomplishment, scientists knew they still lacked a clear understanding of the genetic basis of disease, and how to translate that understanding into more effective prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. To reach these goals, it was clear that a new type of research institution had to be created. The traditional academic model of individual laboratories working within their specific disciplines was not designed to meet the emerging challenges of biomedicine. To gain a comprehensive view of the human genome and biological systems, they instead had to work in a highly integrated fashion. That meant working in nimble teams that combined biology, chemistry, mathematics, computation, and engineering with medical science and clinical research. It also meant working at a scale usually seen in industry, with access to world-class infrastructure. At the same time, this institution had to foster an atmosphere of creativity, risk-taking, and open sharing of data and research. Finally, this new model needed to seek collaborations beyond its borders. Broad Institute is an “experiment” in this new way of doing science. It spans some of Boston’s leading institutions (Harvard, MIT, and Harvard-affiliated hospitals) and scientific disciplines (biology, chemistry, medicine, computer science, and engineering). Today, the Broad community includes more than three thousand scientists, committed to advancing research in areas including infectious disease, cancer, psychiatric research, and cardiovascular disease. Embedded in this new approach to doing science, are our values including: a) Propelling the understanding and treatment of disease. Broad Institute is empowering a revolution in biomedicine to accelerate the pace at which the world conquers disease; b) Collaborating deeply – Broad Institute is a mission-driven community that brings together researchers in medicine, biology, chemistry, computation, engineering, and mathematics from across MIT, Harvard, and the Harvard-affiliated hospitals, along with collaborators around the world; c) Reaching globally – Broad Institute is committed to addressing medical challenges across the world, including collaborating with scientists and public health experts to address important needs in developing countries; d) Empowering scientists – Broad Institute fosters an environment in which scientists can take risks on bold ideas with transformative potential; e) Building partnerships – Broad Institute works to build and sustain international consortia to speed discovery in areas including psychiatric research, infectious disease, cardiovascular disease, and cancer; f) Sharing data and knowledge – Broad Institute is committed to making the extensive data, methods, and technologies it generates rapidly and readily accessible to the scientific community to drive biomedical progress around the world (Read about our principles for disseminating scientific innovations); and g) Promoting inclusion – Broad Institute believes that progress in biomedical research requires a fully inclusive community across sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and gender identity.

Folding@home (FAH or F@h)
http://folding.stanford.edu/

Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for disease research that simulates protein folding, computational drug design, and other types of molecular dynamics. As of today, the project is using the idle resources of personal computers owned by volunteers from all over the world. Thousands of people contribute to the success of this project. The Pande Lab is the founding scientific group of Folding@home. Directed by Professor Vijay Pande, Ph.D., the lab is part of the Departments of Chemistry and of Structural Biology, Stanford University and Stanford University Medical Center, and works on theory and simulations of how proteins, RNA, and nanoscale synthetic polymers fold. They founded the project, developed methods for using distributed computing to study long timescale dynamics, pushed its application to protein folding, and wrote the client software and server code for the Folding@home project. The members of the group involved with Folding@home are listed on our web page. This will be added to Grid, Distributed and Cloud Computing Resources Subject Tracer™.
