Accelerating Medicines Partnership: Type 2 Diabetes Project

The Accelerating Medicines Partnership Type 2 Diabetes Project (AMP T2D), is a multi-sector, pre-competitive partnership among government, industry, and nonprofit organizations, the goal of which is to harness collective capabilities, scale and resources toward improving current efforts to develop new therapies for complex, heterogeneous diseases. This program creates a T2D Knowledge Portal by building a database of DNA sequence, functional genomic and epigenomic, and clinical data from T2D studies with cardiac and renal complications data across roughly 150,000K+  individuals. The AMP T2D Knowledge Portal will house the dataset and analytical tools, which will be publicly accessible for querying to researchers for data mining and analysis.

The project also seeks to fill data gaps in the Knowledge Portal by both collecting new data and executing specific analyses. Researchers will investigate targets of particular interest by sequencing DNA from select individuals, incorporating the resulting new data into the common database. The end goal will be to have a powerful, publicly available T2D Knowledge Portal with a progressively growing database and analytical tools for identification and validation of effective T2D drug candidates. The 5-year, $40M project launched in early 2014.
