Mark2Curators have been busy! Over the weekend, our volunteers brought the current beta experiment from about 28% completion to over 50% completion. We’ve gotten excellent feedback from you and are working to improve on the issues and suggestions you’ve sent us! Thank you and keep them coming!!!
We now have over a hundred registered Mark2Curators who have shared compelling reasons as to why they Mark2Cure.
If we categorize the reasons, they look something like this:
We know all of our Mark2curators are altruistic, else they wouldn’t be contributing, but many have their reasons for doing so. For over half of our Mark2Curators, the primary motivation for contributing is to help others! How awesome is that? About half of our Mark2Curators were motivated by their interested in health and science. About 25% of our Mark2Curators were motivated by disease ties, with >70% of the disease ties being rare diseases. If you’re wondering why the sum of the percentages is over 100%, it’s because many reasons cannot neatly be contained by a single category.
