Practical Applications of Data Science to Speed Clinical Trials.



At the end of 2019 there were almost 320,000 clinical trials worldwide. Since the outbreak, almost 500 clinical trials have been launched to find a treatment for COVID-19. There are more clinical trials then ever, and the number keeps expanding. Better technology enables faster access and data analysis. This PHUSE SDE will highlight the concepts behind practical applications of data science which are key to bringing faster insights from all this data.
