One Mind for Research

One Mind is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. They are dedicated to benefiting all affected by brain illness and injury through fostering fundamental changes that will radically accelerate the development and implementation of improved diagnostics, treatments and cures — while eliminating the stigma that comes with mental illness.
Their mission is fueled by their belief in open science principles and creating global public-private partnerships among governmental, corporate, scientific and philanthropic communities.


SyncThink is a neuro-technology company with foundational intellectual property in eye-tracking metrics and devices. The Company was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

SYNCTHINK was founded by Dr. Jam Ghajar, a clinical professor of neurosurgery at Stanford and founder and director of its Concussion and Brain Performance Center. He is also the founder of the Brain Trauma Foundation. Other notable board members include Alan Quasha, Ernie Santin, Kevin Quinn, and John van Merkensteijn.

SyncThink sells its diagnostic device under the EYE-SYNC label. The EYE-SYNC is a high-performance device that uses virtual reality to assess abnormal eye movement, which is a common occurrence after a concussion. The device comes in a portable suitcase that can be used in a clinical setting or outdoors.

The EYE-SYNC received FDA clearance in January, 2016 to market the technology as a medical device.

The device is currently used by Stanford University as well as various other institutions.

Federal Interagency TRI Repository

The Federal Interagency Traumatic Brain Injury Research (FITBIR) informatics system was developed to share data across the entire TBI research field and to facilitate collaboration between laboratories, as well as interconnectivity with other informatics platforms. Sharing data, methodologies, and associated tools, rather than summaries or interpretations of this information, can accelerate research progress by allowing re-analysis of data, as well as re-aggregation, integration, and rigorous comparison with other data, tools, and methods. This community-wide sharing requires common data definitions and standards, as well as comprehensive and coherent informatics approaches.

Datalys Center

The Datalys Center for Sports Injury Research and Prevention is a non-profit 501(c)3 that specializes in the collection and analysis of injury, health outcomes and other types of data from sports organizations and other physically active populations. The Datalys Center was formed by the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA), the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and BioCrossroads to further the efforts of researchers, public health officials, policy makers, and the public in the understanding and prevention of injuries. Combined with a unique business model of teaming with external researchers and experts, the Datalys Center is able to assemble, maintain and analyze large datasets cost effectively.
