Metadata Usage in Clinical Trials



The 23rd May saw the 3rd PHUSE UK Single Day Event at the spacious Astra Zeneca offices in Granta Park, Cambridge.The event was attended by over 80 European delegates across 40 companies.

The speakers from industry took to the podium one by one to explore Metadata in Clinical Trials from a number of perspectives. From  MDR's (Metadata data Repository), to using Metadata to visualise data, to using metadata to auto generate SDTM's, ADAM's, Tables, figures and Listings. 

Over lunch and during the networking breaks delegates were free to carry on with the dialogue generated from the sessions, making new allies across the various sections of our industry.

With the encouraging feedback that we received it looks like we can plan for another UK SDE in 2017!
