Scientific Data Sharing Project

While many data sharing programs exist worldwide, widespread sharing of raw data has not yet won across-the-board acceptance in the scientific community, and the very existence of all these databases makes the approach fractured at best. The Data Sharing Project, launched last year by University of California-San Francisco Professor Michael Weiner, has two goals: One is to make widespread raw data sharing a reality initially in the realm of medicine through creation of a repository system accessible to all researchers; the second goal is to foster broad scientific support for this move and its adoption in other fields of research. With major projects such as the Human Genome Project demonstrating the tremendous scientific breakthroughs made possible by data sharing and with the decline of technological barriers impeding such efforts, the time has come to work to achieve widespread sharing of raw data worldwide. The Data Sharing Project proposes to further this goal initially in the field of medicine by working to create a raw data sharing program that will serve as a model to other disciplines attempting to make their own way in this arena. The Northern California Institute for Research and Education (NCIRE) together with the University of California-San Francisco and support from the Michael J. Fox Foundation is now in the process of canvassing the scientific community to analyze the best possible data sharing program and practices to establish in the field of medicine.
