Project Data Sphere

On September 10, 2017, Project Data Sphere®, LLC, entered into a strategic collaboration with Merck KGaA to jointly lead the Global Oncology Big Data Alliance (GOBDA). The signed Memorandum of Understanding described three critical pillars of this emerging alliance:

• Growing the value of the core Project Data Sphere cancer research platform by providing additional data (in terms of more patients and more trials), as well as new types of data.
• Enabling the development and implementation of a Rare Cancer Patient Registry. This Registry will aggregate in a common platform the limited data available on the treatment of rare cancers. This will help to amplify it as a shared resource for future investigation and analysis.
• Supporting novel investigations into rare but serious adverse events associated with emerging immuno-oncology therapies.
