Welcome to the GammaGen website!
GammaGen is a research-based citizen science project developed by The Wisdom Factory CIC.
This project offers the possibility of taking some promising research into a disease affecting millions of people across the world for which there is, at present, no known cure, and expanding the knowledge and research base sufficiently to either confirm that the intervention has some remedial effect or that it should be discounted and the focus should continue in other areas. This project offers the possibility of ‘citizen science’ working with mainstream research to bring benefit to individual sufferers with little or no hope of a cure, as well as the wider medical and scientific profession. The benefit for the individual is not just a possible hope of a palliative or cure, but the feeling of doing something to help themselves, rather than simply waiting for this insidious disease to plunge them into darkness, isolation and eventual death.
You can see a video about the principles behind the project here.*
The project is delivered via a smartphone app called GammaGen, available in iOS and Android versions.
