Luncheon Presentation I: Towards the use of bioassays as predictors of adverse events in clinical trials

Matthew Clark, Ph.D., Consultant Research & Development Solutions, Elsevier

To reduce clinical trial failures we have studied how inexpensive bioassays can predict adverse event risks in clinical trials. We used data from FDA submissions and bioactivities from journals and patents to create 2×2 contingency tables for each target/event combination. The relationships were then studied with pathway analysis to understand the models.

Transforming Disparate Data into Collective Insights

Frederik van den Broek, Ph.D., Consultant, Research & Development Solutions, Elsevier

Gregory Landrum, Ph.D., Vice President, Life Sciences, AG

Big data in R&D is simply today’s data. Efficiently and reproducibly learning from this data requires us to combine different types of information from various sources and to apply advanced analytics and visualisation to the resulting data set(s) using integrated workflow and analytics platforms.

This talk will present use cases showing how one can obtain these insights which are vital for R&D decision-making in today’s competitive drug discovery environment.
