virtual event and open to all.





What’s in Your Toolbox? Sharing Practical Ideas for Putting Data Science to Work



Clinical data scientists need to put innovative thoughts and processes at work in order to meet the requirements of the rapidly changing and adaptive drug development environment. The processes and tools data scientists deal with could be related to data analytics dashboards, custom report generation modules, graphical utilities, risk-based monitoring tools and many other tools and techniques.

This SDE is aimed to provide data scientists a forum to share their thoughts and learn about innovative data science practices implemented in industry. Attendees will discuss successful implementation of tools, techniques, innovative processes, and practices in data sciences in sponsor, CRO, and specialized service and technology provider environments.
