Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Seventh Annual

Integrated Pharma Informatics & Data Science

From R&D to Real World Data

February 16-18, 2015 | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 22nd Annual Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference

 

About this Conference:

Although pharma R&D and technology spending continues to increase, overall productivity is decreasing. To address this productivity gap, pharma and biotech must effectively manage and integrate data from all stages of the pharmaceutical value chain to enable more informed decisions. This is seen in the emerging trend of dedicated data science groups in pharma and the growing numbers of data scientists.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s seventh annual Integrated Pharma Informatics & Data Science conference explores the transformation of current IT and informatics teams into data science groups and current progress made by such groups in the analysis, integration and visualization of complex data sets, including genomic, imaging, clinical, external/collaboration, and real world data. Dedicated sessions at the conference will focus on visualization and analysis of big data, and informatics in support of collaboration and externalization.
