Bridging Gaps in Research

Through a coordinated research effort involving patients, clinicians and researchers, the Brain Inflammation Collaborative strives to uncover connections between brain inflammation and mental and physical health and make advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuroinflammatory illness.

Uncover hidden connections between inflammation and mental health with patient-reported outcomes that leverage wearables, and validated assessments on the Unhide™ Platform for groundbreaking research insights.

The Unhide Project is an ongoing online clinical study that assembles patient-donated data to help clinicians and researchers accelerate breakthroughs surrounding brain inflammation and mental health.

Join the Movement

The relationship between brain inflammation and mental health is vastly understudied and misunderstood. The Brain Inflammation Collaborative is leading the charge to change that. Discover all the different ways you can support our mission to find long-overdue answers and solutions for patients.

Bridging Gaps in Research

Our Collaborating Partners

Stanford University

Galatea.bio

PANDAS Network

Dr. Frankovich is a Clinical Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Allergy, Immunology Rheumatology (AIR) at Stanford University/Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH). Frankovich’s clinical expertise is in systemic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases that co-occur with psychiatric symptoms. She completed her training in pediatrics, pediatric rheumatology, and clinical epidemiology at Stanford. Dr. Frankovich directs the Stanford PANS Program (2012- present) and along with her collaborators have created a longitudinal clinical database and large biorepository of patient and control biospecimens.

Galatea Bio leverages world class ancestry algorithms to better understand underserved Latin American populations while maintaining a strong commitment to ethical research. Galatea Bio has identified a gap in global biobanking efforts: they have focused primarily on nothern European communities. Galatea Bio aims to expand the diversity of the dataset in order to dramatically accelerate the discovery rate in the field of genomics, and help narrow the gap in health outcomes for underrepresented minorities.

PANDAS Network is a non-profit support network for individuals suffering from Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS) and Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS). PANDAS Network aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment of children with PANDAS. Armed with an impressive network of doctors, researchers and scientists, PANDAS Network builds public awareness, provides much-needed support to families and gathers data and resources to better inform parents and the medical community about PANDAS/PANS.

Biobank of The Americas

Drumroll Health

OU Health Sciences Center

The Biobank of the Americas is a public-private consortium bringing together diverse organizations under one common goal: build the largest genomic database focused on underrepresented populations.

Drumroll.ai is an analytics platform designed to give everyone the easiest and fastest way to undersatnd their data – regardless of technical abilities or resources. They offer several AI and Machine Learning products designed to assist in data preparation, utilizing dozens of algorithms to scan, interpret, encode, and arrange data. Features include the ability to personalize and adjust data settings before it is computed, use of fully automated queries (no coding required), and ability to generate meaningful insights (correlations, comparisons, clusters, and more) in mere seconds.

Dr. Madeleine Cunningham, PhD is a George Lynn Cross Research Professor of Autoimmunity and Infection at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Dr. Cunningham’s laboratory has been highly focused on the investigation of molecular mimicry, autoimmunity and infection in inflammatory heart disease for the past 20 years.

The Autoimmune Registry is a hub for research, statistics, and patient data on all autoimmune disease. Its goal is to collect data on autoimmune incidence, demographic background, and survival rates in the United States to improve understanding of autoimmune diseases, the populations they affect, their risks for comorbid diseases, and their natural progression over time.

Lumosity

Fuel Studios

Moleculera Labs

Lumos Labs, creator of Lumosity is a science team committed to translating cognitive science into accessible brain training. Their scientists research well-known methods of training cognitive abilities like Memory and Attention, design a game that effectively challenges a particular cognitive ability, and create the game, keeping brain training both fun and challenging.

Fuel Studios is a consulting group specializing in eClinical solutions, biostatistics, and other therapeutic knowledge in MedTech. They assist research teams with clinical database design, as well as advanced reporting, mobile technology integration, and platform support to efficiently capture and analyze clean data and ensure positive end-user experience.

Moleculera Labs is dedicated to the discovery and delivery of advanced diagnostic testing services for children and adults suffering from traeatable auotimmune neuropsychiatric disorders. Moleculera Labs is the sole provider of a testing panel which assists physicians in their diagnosis of autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders, such as PANS and PANDAS. The Cunningham Panel™ is the first and only test of its kind in the world, and is the result of more than a decade of research and development.
