Advancing Research

One Mind supports pivotal neuropsychiatric research that is changing the face of brain health.

The future of brain health is collaborative


One Mind’s strategy for advancing research reflects our finding that collaborative, open science generates both faster and more cost-efficient results. That speed is critical to expedite treatments and cures for mental disorders and to provide hope to the millions of people around the world and their families who live with or are at risk for a brain health challenge.

For this reason, we seek to identify strategic funding opportunities in the research landscape and convene support for innovative collaborations that aid our vision of accelerating brain health for all. Across the scale of the research arena, One Mind employs a venture philanthropy model, coordinating public-private partnerships for good between government agencies and private organizations. Leveraging these types of partnerships can triple the impact of the research. A final element of our approach is ensuring that the researchers we fund agree to make their data and analyses accessible to the broader community working to advance knowledge in this space. It turns out that you go farther and faster together. That’s exactly how we plan to make the journey to a better future for brain health.
