Disease Maps

Our Achievements

The Foundation has collaborated with Thomson Reuters to generate disease maps to show how Foundation funds are spent. In this project, Thomson Reuters created disease schemas for neurofibromatosis types 1 and 2 and schwannomatosis in order to enable the mapping of project management and finance data on the disease pathways involved in each of the disorders. The schemas were created in Pathway Map Creator, a pathway drawing software application of Thomson Reuters. The pathway maps give a snapshot of the different processes involved in each disorder, and by clicking on the dollar signs, the list of grants funded by the Foundation can be seen. By moving from disease schema to dashboard, funding in the different aspects of the research and development process can be seen. The schemas can be easily adjusted and/or converted to other formats. The disease maps will be updated on a yearly basis in collaboration with Thomson Reuters.
