Webinar: Breaking down barriers: enabling decision-making across data silos with advanced data analytics

Webinar
April 13, 2016
Venue:

Across the drug discovery and development pipeline, and through into healthcare delivery, data drives business decisions. Getting the best view of available information requires good access to data from both structured databases and in unstructured text.

In this webinar, Linguamatics and Cerenode will demonstrate how their combined technologies enables researchers to search and visualise valuable information across disparate sources. Looking at personalised medicine in lung cancer as an example; we will answer questions such as:

  • Which companies are working on lung cancer?
  • What are the current and potential protein targets in NSCLC?
  • What drugs are on the market, and is there white space for novel targets?
  • Are there gene variants that could enable patient stratification?

Presenters: Dr. David Milward, CTO, Linguamatics, Dr.Jane Reed, Head of Life Science Strategy, Linguamatics, Kalpana Krishnaswami, Founder and CEO, Cerenode

Duration: 40 minutes including Q&A
