A sustainable, open, interoperable information infrastructure for applied life science research and development
What is Open PHACTS?
Open PHACTS began as an Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) project to build a platform for researchers to access and query publicly-available pharmacological data. Together we have built the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform by bringing together vast amounts of linked data in a single integrated, open infrastructure.
All the data brought together by Open PHACTS is free to access, to help researchers in drug discovery to find and use the information they need.
What is the Open PHACTS Foundation?
The Open PHACTS Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to developing and sustaining the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform. This is made possible by the contributions and support of our Foundation Members. For full details about the management and goals of the Foundation, please see our Articles of Association and Memorandum of Association.
