OpenTrials

Just sneaking in before the Xmas craziness, we have Ben Meghreblian ytalking about the recent launch of the OpenTrials beta:


OpenTrials is a collaboration between Open Knowledge International and Dr Ben Goldacre from the University of Oxford. It aims to locate, match, and share all publicly accessible data and documents, on all trials conducted, on all medicines and other treatments, globally. 

http://opentrials.net/ 

There will be job announcements, notices of meetings and of course drinks at the pub afterwards (the Fine Line afterwards,just across the road, next to the church: https://goo.gl/maps/YZUvKyGTPp52)

Approximate schedule:

6:30: doors open
6:45: chitchat, announcements
7:00: talk starts
7:45: talk ends, adjourn to pub

For entry to the Hays building, we need a proper name that identifies you, like "J Smith" or "Jane Jones". "Bob" or "weaselstabber1982" isn't going to work.

To help with this, we have set up this [google form] <--- click me. 

In addition to signing up here at meetup.com, please also fill this in as we also need to share this with the event host.

Helps a bunch with building security! Cheers!

    Hi everyone, thanks for having me last week!

    Would love to hear your thoughts about how we can improve OpenTrials - here's the link: https://explorer.opentrials.net

    Also, a few of you said you may be interested in contributing in various ways - in both cases, please drop me a line: [masked]

    Also, as mentioned during the talk, if you're interested in playing around with the data that powers OpenTrials, here's information on our open API: http://opentrials.net/api

    Thanks to Ben M for a stimulating talk: there's so much to do with OpenTrials that it's difficult to know where to start. And thanks as always to Ben vZ for gracious hosting.

    On a more serious note, we had a lot of no shows this month. This makes it impossible to plan or cater for events. While life and the unexpected happens to us all, I'm going to start banning repeat offenders.

      Agree. We should employ a three strikes (no show) rule.

    Paul - I sent a message to Ben vZ. Basically I did not want to spread the latest flu virus that has been re-engineered in my body and is specific to bioinformaticians at this meeting. I am extremely sorry and hope that does not happen again. I look forward to the next one.

      This is necessary for security on the venue. They need a full, proper name.

    • Paul A.

      ... and if you're bringing guests, get their names on the form too.

    We'll probably merge the groups over Christmas, but for the meanwhile respond to either here or the bioinformatics devops group.
