Grassroots Research

We explore the prevention & reduction of medication harm by using research to identify needs & to discover solutions.

As a startup non-profit organization Safest Drug has not waited on large funding sources to help us conduct research. Instead, since our founding, we’ve committed ourselves to support the launch of grassroots research projects as a critically necessary action to better understand the scope of preventable medication injury and death at the local, state, and national levels. Below reflects where some of our research has focused. To help fund or to partner with us on a research study, please email
