The Yale School of Medicine’s Open Data Access (YODA) Project helps researchers and physicians to access anonymized clinical trial data from Janssen – Johnson & Johnson's pharmaceutical business wing.
In order to enter this Data Collaborative with YODA, data sharers like Johnson & Johnson must agree to hand over full jurisdiction of their clinical data to Yale. This allows researchers access to private clinical data while ensuring such data is shared responsibly.
Johnson & Johnson's Janssen shares access to anonymized clinical trials data with the Yale Open Data Access Project, which serves as an independent body overseeing trials data requests from investigators and researchers. The purpose of YODA is to allow researchers access to important clinical data from Johnson & Johnson whilst ensuring the safety and privacy of this initiative.
