OpenTrialsFDA presents prototype as finalist for the Open Science Prize: support us with your vote!


On 1 December 2016 the OpenTrialsFDA team (a collaboration between Drs. Erick Turner, Ben Goldacre and the OpenTrials team at Open Knowledge International) presented its prototype as one of the six finalists for the Open Science Prize.

OpenTrialsFDA works on making clinical trial data from the FDA (the US Food and Drug Administration) more easily accessible and searchable, to improve transparency in clinical research.

During the online voting period which runs from 1 Dec until 6 January 2017, the public is asked to help select the most promising, innovative and impactful prototype from among the six finalists – of which one will receive the grand prize of $230,000.
