Using Data for the Public Good

The Immune Tolerance Network’s (ITN) TrialShare Clinical Trials Research Portal has won the National Academy of Sciences Data and Information Challenge. The theme of this year’s competition was “Using Data for the Public Good.”

The ITN is a research cooperative led by Benaroya Research Institute and funded by a grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

ITN TrialShare Group

The ITN’s entry, entitled “ITN TrialShare: Enabling True Clinical Trial Transparency,” describes the unique data sharing portal developed by the Network. The system provides clinical trial investigators an unprecedented ability to share data with other researchers. Among its unique features are the ability to access raw de-identified participant level study data, review published analysis methods, and perform real-time interactive graphical analyses in collaboration with other researchers.
