  • More than 400 randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have been registered on clinicaltrials.gov, many are meant to answer similar questions but lack any method to combine data and evidence. By aggregating evidence across these trials, we can learn about interventions for COVID-19 as quickly and reliably as possible. The COVID-19 Collaboration Platform brings disparate research teams working on the same
