Blockchain Working Group awards grant to PAD project

Author: Marya Lieberman

Our proposal titled "The whole world is watching:  tracking bad quality medicine with citizen science and an electronic ledger" was funded by the Notre Dame Blockchain Working Group for 2018!  Computer scientists James and Chris Sweet will work with the PAD project to institute a distributed electronic ledger that can track test results for particular products.  We look forward to using this new methodology for determining the reliability of different actors in the pharmaceutical supply chain.
