Partnership with Medtronic, Inc.

The Yale University Open Data Access (YODA) Project partnered with Medtronic, Inc. to put its data sharing model in practice for the first time in order to study and release all of the company’s clinical research data related to recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2). The YODA Project led independent, systematic reviews of the entire body of scientific evidence regarding the safety and effectiveness of Medtronic’s rhBMP-2 product. The reviews were conducted independently by two academic teams with full access to all Medtronic’s clinical trial, post-marketing and safety data about rhBMP-2. In addition, the grant supported the dissemination of all Medtronic clinical research data on rhBMP-2 to external investigators from June 2013-June 2015.
