Author(s): Priyadarshini Satish

In the medical and pharmaceutical industry, selection of sites for clinical trials is a critical task that involves analyzing proprietary information about demographics, geography, economy, and market dynamics. A comprehensive list of clinical trial sites from published by the US National Library of Medicine is available online. This data set includes information about clinical trials registered on the website since 2000 across the world. While it is not exhaustive, it contains a list of all studies that require registration with the FDA that involve studies on behaviors, effect of a drug, or procedure on human volunteers.
