The tranSMART Foundation Announces New Version of the tranSMART Open Source Data Sharing Platform for the Life Sciences Community
Date:9/16/2013

Wakefield, Mass. (PRWEB) September 16, 2013

The tranSMART Foundation, a non-profit organization providing a global, open-source knowledge management platform for scientists to share their pre-competitive data, today announced the release of tranSMART version 1.1. Originally developed as an internal project by Johnson & Johnson, this new version of the cloud-based data sharing solution eliminates the need for user organizations to purchase commercial software and integrates significant new contributions by the developer community over the past year into one new release.

“Scientists at universities, non-profit research organizations, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are struggling to effectively leverage the massive amounts of high-quality research data available to advance their studies,” said tranSMART Foundation co-CEO Brian Athey, Ph.D., also with the University of Michigan. “To date, we have more than 25 life science organizations utilizing the tranSMART platform to link research data with clinical data in a central repository. We envision that through this platform scientists will have the ability to effectively collaborate using pre-competitive data – facilitating quicker and more cost-effective translational medicine research.”

The Foundation’s co-CEO, Michael Braxenthaler, Ph.D., who also holds positions with Roche and the Pistoia Alliance, added, “Our goal is to create a collaborative translational research community. Our development community is focused on the Foundation’s three C’s: code, community and content. With the open tranSMART platform, we are limiting dependency on commercial software products and leveraging the expertise of the entire user community. We have an aggressive product roadmap to develop the next generation of the platform to include new interfaces and analytical functionality as well as a more modern information architecture.”
