  • Want to investigate your master’s thesis hypothesis using real clinical trial data from cancer studies?
  • Need access to real clinical data to evaluate the algorithm you are developing for your dissertation?
  • Want to demonstrate a different method for categorizing adverse events or a statistical approach for using lab panel data as a time-series covariate in a model of disease progression?
  • Do you just want to prepare yourself to transition from college to career by getting hands-on experience using SAS Drug Development? It's the industry-standard software platform used by pharmaceutical companies to analyze data for FDA submissions.



Get the data at the link below!

Project Data Sphere, founded by the CEO Roundtable on Cancer, brings together leading pharmaceutical companies to share data and an analytics platform to investigate those data. The platform now provides access to data from more than 40 studies and 25,000 patients from clinical trials of prostate cancer, breast cancer, and melanoma treatments. The list of available studies is growing rapidly! See for yourself.

In support of Project Data Sphere and the research community, SAS hosts the platform and provides access to SAS Drug Development and SAS Visual Analytics at no cost to researchers.  For most studies, data is already available as SAS data sets, consistent with CDISC/SDTM requirements and ready for analysis using the web-enabled analytics platform.  Students, professors, and others in the research community are welcome to join this growing community of clinical trial esearchers in the fight against cancer.
