openFDA is a new set of API’s dedicated to drugs, devices and foods. You can comb through massive data sets and research. This is a completely open source, scaleable (sp?) project.
I know nothing about programming, analytics or biochemistry, but if any of you do then you’ll surely love this!
Interestingly, none of the top 40 (current) API developers are actual FDA employees.
Here’s a video about the project, part of a series of presentations at Stanford’s 2015 “Big Data” conference.
