First Vivli Global Data Sharing Innovator for publication in the area of dermatology and Vivli Pioneer Winners named

Vivli launched its first data analysis challenge shortly after our launch in an effort to generate interest and move data sharing forward. We are delighted to announce the first Vivli Global Data Sharing Innovator and our Vivli Pioneer Winners.

John Frew, Rockefeller University, is the first Global Data Sharing Innovator for his publication in the area of Dermatology. Dr. Frew will receive a travel award to present at the Vivli Annual Meeting on Nov. 18 in Amsterdam.

“Our congratulations to Dr. Frew,” said Rebecca Li, Vivli Executive Director. “We look forward to being able to name more Vivli Global Data Sharing Innovators in the near future.”

The Vivli Pioneer awards, granted to the first ten lead investigators whose data requests are successfully approved and have initiated their analysis, have also been named. They are eligible to receive $1,000. We are grateful to the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation for their initial grant in supporting these awards.
