The IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization (ISTO), an International Federation of leading industry groups and consortia, announces one of its newest Federation members – the Clinical Research Data Sharing Alliance (CRDSA.) CRDSA was launched in August 2021 by a group of leading BioPharma companies, academic institutions, and non-profit data-sharing platforms to expand the research value of the high-quality data collected through the clinical trial process.
FDA and Project Data Sphere (PDS) hosted Symposium X on Data Sharing on September 23rd, 2021. PDS President and CRDSA Board Member Bill Louv opened the session, followed by a keynote address by Rob Califf, and CRDSA Board Member Frank Rockhold from Duke University presented as a panelist on Sustainability Practices in Sharing and Reuse.
As part of a roundtable at September’s DIA Global Clinical Trial Disclosure and Data Transparency Conference, CRDSA’s Aaron Mann shared his thoughts on how the secondary use of clinical trial data will power innovation in 2022 and beyond.
Bron Kisler participated in the GA4GH 9th Plenary Meeting as a presenter and panelist – Building Bridges to Industry and Clinical Care Panel. Bron provided an overview of CRDSA and Work Streams, highlighted challenges faced by data contributors and users across clinical research, and identified opportunities for the clinical research and genomics communities to work together to improve data sharing for the benefit of patients.
The Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) features Virginia Nido, CRDSA and ACRP Board Member, talks about the importance of clinical trial data-sharing and why CRDSA was formed to help make the process easier for research professionals.
