Center for Global Research Data
March 1, 2018 | Vivli Releases Agenda for July Platform Launch

Clinical trials drive innovation and advance human health. With the launch of the Vivli platform, the global research community will gain a powerful new way to discover, share, and analyze clinical trial data. The platform launch event will be held at the National Academies in Washington, D.C. on July 19th. Attendance at the event is by invitation only as space is limited, so please get in touch with Vivli at if you would like to attend.

In addition to recognizing the diverse group of stakeholders and partners whose contributions have helped make the Vivli platform a reality, the launch will serve as a forum for discussion about the future of data sharing in the clinical trials research community.  We hope that you will be able to join us for the official launch of the Vivli platform.
