The US FDA publishes results on drugs that have side effects, along with drug characteristics, the nature of the adverse event, and basic demographic information of the patient.

This is an open-ended project to see what insights can be drawn from this drug data.

    This is an amazing proposal.

    For the most part what I like is the impact this is likely to have on peoples lives.

    Any more information on how one could get started with this will be helpful.

      The data is at http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/Surveillance/AdverseDrugEffects/default.htm

      At the moment, I don't have any specific suggestions on how to analyse it or what to do with it. Maybe we can discuss that at the hacknight?

    Hey folks, if you were having trouble upvoting comments this morning, it's fixed now. I'm still working on the overall UI of this page and will need a few days.
