ADaM Revisited

PHUSE are pleased to announce that this was the 10th successful Single Day Event in Copenhagen.



On 6th June, the 10th PHUSE Single Day Event (SDE) in Copenhagen was held at Novo Nordisk’s largest research centre, in Måløv. The event was attended by 115 delegates from 8 countries across 25 companies.

The theme of the event was ‘ADaM Revisited’, where local pharma companies shared their best practices, tools, learnings and experiences using CDISC ADaM. Presentations were given on CDISC SEND, open source and new reality regarding data sharing.

In addition to 10 very interesting presentations, a poster session was provided during the break, with a lot of knowledge sharing and discussions on various topics such as ‘Processing Big Data in ADaM’, ‘How to Handle Physical Activity Tracker Data’, ‘After ADaM Comes Analysis (Meta) Data – Retrospective View, Present and Future’, and ‘nRage-enhanced Report Appendix Generator’.

‘Open Source Selection’, by Katja Glass, was chosen as best poster, motivated by her clear presentation of a complex issue, using well-selected graphics.

Yet another successful SDE! We would like to thank our sponsors, and Novo Nordisk, for making this possible. Also, a huge thanks to the presenters for preparing high-quality presentations and for their knowledge sharing, which contributed to good discussions and interaction cross-industry.
