The second Sage Bionetworks Commons Congress was held in San Francisco on April 15-16, 2011. The theme was the move towards personalized, patient-driven medicine, and the role that Sage Bionetworks and its partners should play in that transition. There were reports from the Sage Federation, Working Groups, and exciting projects like SageCite, poster sessions and evening activities.
