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

The SPARC Consortium’s complementary expertise and highly interactive nature allows us to tackle the neuroanatomy and implications of nerve stimulation on specific colonic functions, thereby identifying neural circuits that can influence gut diseases.

I appreciate this secure, well-maintained portal with effective access for storing, visualizing, distributing, and communicating my own data to my own group better than I could on my own.

SPARC places big data fields into a larger context that helps researchers to critically evaluate their data, and also integrates imaging and spatial data,  helping researchers find relevance to their work.
