PhUSE Computational Science Symposium
Collaboration Leads Solutions
PhUSE, Industry, and Regulatory agencies engaged in another successful CSS collaboration this past March. Over 325 people attended including over 60 individuals from various regulatory agencies engaging in discussion, idea generation, and problem solving with the goal of improving the product development lifecycle. Working Groups gathered on Sunday evening to share the progress they have made over the last year and to discuss the work being planned during the CSS. An exciting and innovative session was held on Sunday evening where the Linked Data Working Group showed how we can leverage newer technology to more robustly map our clinical information.
On Monday we kicked off the meeting with our traditional FDA state of the union where FDA provided the audience with an overview of where they are with the quality of submissions and how they continue to build their internal capabilities to improve the review process. Then the Working Groups rolled up their sleeves and got to work. Healthy debates were added, questions were answered, solutions proposed, and new projects formed to tackle various topics across the collaboration. The groups worked throughout Monday and Tuesday with lots of energy and brain power. The meeting ended on Tuesday with an engaging and challenging panel discussion as questions were asked about the future state of the standards and guidances.
Another great event and we encourage everyone to stay involved throughout the year, help out a working group, and join us in 2018!
