Inspire Research Accelerator

Propelling research via millions of patients and caregivers

Inspire Research Accelerator is a program to enable all researchers from any organizations around the world to collaborate with Inspire. There will be no cost for researchers from academic settings where the intended use of the research is to share findings openly and widely, and not for commercial purposes.

Collaborating via the Accelerator will allow you to:

  • Unlock research gaps using an existing library of longitudinal, endemic-specific instruments, especially for personalized medicine and rare diseases
  • Identify and engage with cancer and rare disease patient populations based on specific clinical trials experience and interest
  • Rapidly deploy and review validated Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) measurement tools
  • Further the exploration of complex disease underpinnings. This is done through correlations of structured and unstructured data and phenotypes reported by patients with other data types such as genomics/multi-omics and other biological data
