January 13, 2020: National Library of Medicine Launches a Modernization of ClinicalTrials.gov

As the National Library of Medicine (NLM) celebrates 20 years of ClinicalTrials.gov, a new multi-year initiative is underway to modernize and enhance the user experience of this public resource. To that end, NLM is seeking actionable input through a Request for Information (RFI) and will hold an informational webinar for stakeholders as well as a public meeting:

  • Request for Information due March 14, 2020.
  • Webinar on the modernization effort for all stakeholders January 22, 3:30-4:00 pm ET. Register for the webinar.
  • Save the date for a public meeting planned for April 30, 2020, at the Natcher Conference Center on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

“ClinicalTrials.gov is the world’s largest public clinical research registry and results database, giving patients, families, health care providers, researchers, and others easy access to information on clinical studies relating to a wide range of diseases and conditions.” –NLM’s Musings from the Mezzanine blog.
