COMPASS Group, 2m’s cross-disciplinary network, fosters an ongoing dialogue among its over 500 researchers and growing patient communities as well as funders. Its uniquely structured, linear approach to problem solving helps us move from ideas to actions; from research to translation of targeted products and scalable services. COMPASS is leading the development of this new ecosystem that will make individualized definitions, treatments and adaptable supports for chronic conditions like autism possible.
Autism Impact Fund is the first venture fund for autism. It fuels an ecosystem of companies that will drive innovation in digital health, therapeutics, innovative service and smart community models—all in the Autism+ framework.
The COUNT Precision Autism Project is the first study to leverage longitudinal Autism+ profiling of genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, lipidomic, and physiological metrics, plus wearable data to understand the disorder at an individual level. 2m is partnering with Snyder Lab, the world leader in longitudinal omic and wearable data collection and analysis, and Simons Foundation to bring precision measures to ASD.
IN OUR OWN HANDS, our feature documentary, provides the narrative for the patient-led transformation of health care. The film follows the birth and development of the Citizen Science movement and introduces a few of the courageous individuals who are ushering in a new age of Digital Medicine.
DWELL’s mission is to create a scalable technology platform empowering community residents with information that helps them live their best lives. A suite of innovative life management tools for people with autism, the DWELL Stack will leverage the latest sensors and wearables to support informed decision making anywhere you live. DWELL will put control back into the hands of residents and care teams by gathering shareable, actionable information about things that matter to each person’s wellbeing.
2m|LEARN’s goal is to radically advance the research, science, and development of personalized education, and create a new model that is quantifiable, scalable, and addresses the needs of different learners. Our first initiative, (QC)Lab, is a quantified classroom where experts are reversing the education model, tailoring the curriculum to fit the student’s needs, not the student to fit the curriculum’s requirements. Our team explores how students learn best by analyzing academic performance in relation to behavioral and biological data.
An estimated 87% of people with ASD experience some level of motor dysfunction. Traditional neurological work-ups capture basic measures, but in a long-interval, subjective fashion. With the availability of wearables and sensors, precision measures are possible. MOVE is about capturing these new data streams, and adding them to a shared autism data lake. MOVE will help create a platform for data sharing so that every researcher has a view on this data, and the hypotheses that the global research community develops around this multi-omic, long and wide data as it relates to motor in autism.
