Use Workflow to Streamline CRO Data Management

April 9th, 2024

Collaboration between Pharma/Biotech companies and CRO's has become an essential component of the drug discovery process. Data sharing between collaborators poses significant challenges to the security and efficiency of joint projects. Scilligence will host a seminar to discuss these informatics challenges and present our out-of-the-box solutions to the data sharing problem. The presentation will feature a live demo of three typical example request workflows between the project owner and its CRO partner(s), powered by our scientific informatics platform.

This is a hybrid event, which will be hosted at the Scilligence office in Cambridge (625 Mount Auburn St Suite 203, Cambridge MA 02138. Parking is free.) A Zoom link will be sent to respondents who opt for virtual attendance.
