HopeLab's mission is to combine rigorous research with innovative solutions to improve the health and quality of life of young people with chronic illness.
HopeLab has developed a video game called Re-Mission for young people with cancer. A randomized, controlled study of this intervention showed that the young people who played Re-Mission adhered more consistently to cancer treatments than those who did not play the game. We have also launched Ruckus Nation, an initiative to promote physical activity and combat obesity in young people. Other disease areas of focus include sickle cell disease, autism, and major depressive disorder.
