This week, we are talking about Technology, Iowa, and YODA!

1.  More technology in Clinical Trials.  United Kingdom-based CamNtech is working on innovative technology and recently received FDA approval for two of its devices, MotionWatch and PRO-Diary.

2.  Iowa, popular for farming and Clinical Trials? The ICCR plans to educate physicians and patients about clinical trials being conducted in Iowa of promising new medicines and advocate for the reforms needed to improve the efficiency of clinical research.

3.  Yale’s new YODA project promises to provide more information than ever.  Drug companies like operating in the shadows, but a recent move by Johnson and Johnson may change all that. In collaboration with Yale University’s Open Data Access Project (YODA), the pharmaceutical giant will now share its clinical trial data with researchers.
