In 2017 Alzheimer's and other dementias will cost the nation $259 billion. These costs could rise as high as $1.1 trillion by 2050.


CDC estimates that about 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (or 14.6 per 1,000 8-year-olds).


The NIMH reported an estimated 43.8 million adults aged 18 or older had a mental illness in 2014, representing about 18 percent of all U.S.

How can we accelerate science to enable researchers to solve the largest healthcare challenges in the world?

These solutions typically start with having access to mountains of data. You can spend 20 years and $20 million to build those datasets yourself—or you can use Flywheel.
Founded by researchers for researchers, and already in widespread use by teams at Stanford, Maastricht University, N.L., and Baylor College of Medicine (to name only a few), Flywheel’s mission is simple:

To empower research momentum by providing researchers across the globe with a platform to capture data, manage and analyze their data, and collaborate with other researchers. We give our users the technology they need to do science, not IT.

With reproducible research in mind, Flywheel combines open source methods from top universities, a simple user interface, and an extensible computing engine to accelerate discovery and help researchers focus on science, instead of IT.
