Pop the champagne…It’s time to celebrate!
Open Humans is now a community of 3,000 members…And counting!
As a token of our gratitude for your participation, we’d like to send you an Open Humans sticker. You can put it on your laptop, phone, luggage — wherever you want (but preferably somewhere that others will see it and know you’re cool).
Get a sticker: Email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: This promotion is valid through March 2017 only.
THEN, NOW & NEXT
When we launched in March 2015, we envisioned a platform where participants could ‘open-source’ their body for science. We’ve evolved into a community of researchers, citizen scientists, and individuals whose embrace of open values has indeed enabled new types of scientific study and innovation:
James Turner created an open source iOS app that exports “Health” app data (aka HealthKit) to Open Humans
Alex Biel and Eric Hekler, PhD used James Turner’s app as a data source and created a Pokemon Go study pilot to gain a better understanding of how games might influence physical activity
Open Humans and developers from the Nightscout Project (type 1 diabetes + open source) created a tool to upload data to the Open Humans platform so it can be easily shared with researchers
Dana Lewis is using the Open Humans platform to collect data from DIY artificial pancreas users and facilitate research in partnership with the DIY “closed loop” community
- …And there’s more! We invite you to check out all of our activities here.
We remain fully committed to sharing data that is centered on our greatest resource: YOU. Open Humans’ future is bright, and our current research pipeline includes diverse projects being developed by academic and citizen scientists who study genomics, toxins, viruses, and more.
Together, we will transform the status quo in humans subjects research!
This is all possible because of you so…
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
(And we hope you like the sticker.)
Your data is more powerful
when you’re a part of it!
