Welcome to the SPARC Portal — Advancing bioelectronic medicine through open science!

Our vision: Integration of Data, Knowledge, Computational Modeling, and Spatial Mapping for the peripheral nervous system will greatly advance scientific understanding of this system and will deliver significant impacts for clinical medicine.

Connecting the Research Community

SPARC is setting a benchmark for FAIR data management by providing necessary tools for researchers to share data. They are also making data easily accessible and reusable through their Portal.

The Sparc.Science interaction tools, like the maps, help visualize the system and the nerves, as they're coursing through the body. It's useful to see the markers indicating there is data at specific anatomical locations.

What SPARC is doing is something special. Groundbreaking. I don’t just study the heart or diseases - I can collaborate and explore the intersections between them.
