Title of Collaborative Activity:

Collaborative Use Repurposing Engine ID (CURE ID)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

CURE ID is an internet-based repository that lets the clinical community report novel uses of existing drugs for difficult-to-treat infectious diseases through a website, a smartphone or other mobile device. The platform enables the crowdsourcing of medical information from health care providers to facilitate the development of new treatments for neglected diseases. CURE ID is a collaboration between the FDA and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). FDA and NIH are also collaborating with the World Health Organization and the Infectious Disease Society of America to assess the global utility of the CURE ID.
