Dear Vivli Friends:
Today, data sharing is no longer an option—it’s becoming an imperative.
This past year, we’ve seen more data being shared than ever before: investigators who run clinical trials are posting their data-sharing plans, and more academic institutions and members of industry are stepping forward in leadership to share data from completed trials. At Vivli, we’ve received a steady stream of requests from researchers around the world wanting to analyze clinical trial data using the Vivli platform.
2019 was a milestone year for Vivli too, as we celebrated the one-year anniversary of the Vivli platform. We grew faster than we had imagined: 22 members currently contribute 4700+ trials – an increase of over 80% of trials shared in the platform since our launch. Vivli is now one of the largest global data sharing platforms for clinical trials. We are grateful to our members and funders whose support helped make this possible.
Throughout the year, we continued to make enhancements to the Vivli platform that made it even easier for researchers to store and share data from their clinical trials. In 2020 and beyond we’ll continue to build out the platform, focusing on three goals:
- Implementing incentives for researchers to prepare their data for sharing and re-use
- Enabling the sharing of more diverse datasets
- Increasing awareness of the Vivli platform among the broader research community
I am humbled and extremely proud of the opportunity to serve our organization alongside our dedicated team and board – who share a vision for advancing human health through data sharing and re-use.
We look forward to working with you to realize the scientific breakthroughs that this new reality promises.
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, VIVLI
