Accelerating Medicines Partnership – Type 2 Diabetes Project
Advancing treatments for Type 2 Diabetes by integrating patient data on a common platform for wider sharing and more rigorous analysis
The Accelerating Medicines Partnership Type 2 Diabetes Project (AMP T2D) is a precompetitive partnership among government, industry and nonprofit organizations that harnesses the collective capabilities, scale and resources to improve current efforts to develop new therapies for complex, heterogeneous diseases, such as diabetes and diabetic complications. To date, the AMP T2D project has:
1) amassed, integrated and harmonized genetic and genomic data from existing cohorts from over 1.5 million individuals and made them publicly accessible for querying;
2) connected the data from over 230 phenotypes related to type 2 diabetes and metabolic complications and generated new genomic and target annotation data;
3) built a sophisticated and powerful Type 2 Diabetes Knowledge Portal that enables the broader scientific community and the public to access the data; and
4) developed advanced analytic tools that allow users to perform queries and test hypotheses to prioritize therapeutic targets.
Since its launch in 2014, the AMP T2D Knowledge Portal has become the go-to source for researchers to deposit large amounts of diabetes and complications data for published studies (newly deposited data are curated and harmonized for querying alongside preexisting data). From 2019 to 2020, to accelerate the growth of the AMP T2D database, the program funded thirteen additional proposals. The 5-year, $58M project has been extended until 2021.
