We will dis­cuss oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges aris­ing from this core ini­tia­tive, spear­headed by One Mind for Research, to pro­vide open access to vast amounts of data and help close the gap between basic research and health outcomes.

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY RESEARCH FUNDING PER PATIENT DISEASE # ANNUAL CASES RESEARCH $ $ PER PERSON WEST NILE VIRUS 13,507 $37 Million $2,739 PARKINSON’S DISEASE 56,280 $230 Million $4,086 HIV/AIDS 41,365 $271 Million $6,551 PEDIATRIC CANCER 10,412 $70 Million $6,723 SPINAL CORD INJURIES 12,100 $89 Million $7,355 ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE 28,140 $647 Million $22,992 ALL TBI CASES* 3.4 MILLION* $80 Million $24 The annual incidence for TBI far exceeds any other disease area, yet it receives substantially less research funding per capita. TBI QUICK FACTS • TBI is the #1 CAUSE of DEATH & DISABILITY among CHILDREN. • 5.3 MILLION Americans live with disabilities from TBI. • 50,000 Americans DIE EVERY YEAR from TBI. *New, unpublished number of cases. Even this is believed to be low. Some estimates are as high as 21M per year. SHOULDN’T WE BE DOING MUCH, MUCH MORE?

  9. 9. We will never see the BIG PICTURE unless we share…
  10. 10. GEMINI OVERVIEW • To discover new diagnostics and better treatments for TBI and PTS, we need very large integrated datasets to achieve sample size/power for Biomarker discovery (e.g. genetics) and patient stratification/classification • This will require data sharing models across institutions – multiple successful precedents exist – Data policies should foster both team science and investment – Data should become available to scientists generally, subject to appropriate terms of use – Ensure that patients are treated ethically while creating datasets that may be used broadly – Create a publication policy that properly acknowledges all participants
  11. 11.  There is no central data repository for researchers to share -- even if they want to.  Often there are no data standards and when they do exist they are disease specific and not compliant with standards accepted by the FDA (CDISC). The result is when research makes progress, we cannot quickly move from the bench (basic research) to the bedside (better treatments).  Researchers do not execute standardized protocols nor do they identify and execute workflows. WHY ONE MIND?
