OCC, University of Chicago, and Cohen Veterans Bioscience collaborate on Brain Commons
We're thrilled to partner with Cohen Veterans Bioscience and the Center for Data Intensive Science at University of Chicago (CDIS) for the establishment of the Brain Commons. The Brain Commons is a cloud-hosted platform for big data essential for the understanding of brain conditions.
This data platform will aggregate and manage large-scale datasets from imaging, genomic, wearable, and clinical data sources. The Brain Commons will be hosted and operated by the OCC and the CDIS. OCC Chair and Director of the CDIS, Robert Grossman said, "We are thrilled to collaborate with a progressive organization like Cohen Veterans Bioscience to develop an entirely new way to bring together brain data from across the community. This has already been a powerful approach in cancer genomics, and we are excited to work with Dr. Haas and her team to see how data commons can improve data sharing and accelerate the pace of discovery for the brain disease search community."
