Cureous Commons is a non-profit initiative aiming to launch a next-generation digital research platform as a public service - freely and openly available to patients and researchers.
The Cureous platform has been designed to enable collaborative & open investigations based on:
shared patient populations
shared research methods
enabling patients as research collaborators
Our goal is to establish a widely accessible and trusted platform that can provide an immense value to a broad range of actors, including institutional research, advocacy groups, industry and patient communities.
The platform has been in development since 2017.
Target launch of the platform is June 2021.
HEALTH RESEARCH 2.0
Cureous has been designed for open and transparent investigations - providing full access to data sets as well as meta-data and research method definitions.
Cureous overcomes the challenges of siloed research by enabling teams and projects to seamlessly build on each other based on shared patient populations, shared (de-identified) patient data and shared methods.
Cureous enables patients as collaborators in the investigation of their conditions. Beyond participation in studies, patients can be engaged in all stages of research design and can create self-initiated explorations.
Cureous will be operated by a non-profit organization providing free and open access to platform and data sets.
