Each month, join Kashef Qaadri, a biologist turned bioinformatician, as he interviews guests exploring real-world research informatics challenges through use-cases, providing insights and strategies for integrating and analyzing complex data that are driving BioPharma R&D.
Episode 10: Next-Generation Therapeutic Antibody Discovery
Over the past three decades, since the first monoclonal antibody was approved for clinical use in the U.S., antibody techniques and technologies have advanced radically. However, the supporting informatics have evolved at a much slower pace. There are significant informatic challenges throughout the research process, from concept to regulatory submission. How can a holistic informatics strategy support gaining clearer insights into scientific operations, make smarter decisions about their campaigns, and ultimately bring therapeutics to the clinic faster?

Episode 9: The Future of Open Access Research Data
Data liquidity, the ability of data to flow easily and securely, provides tremendous value for biopharma researchers. Open access is paving the way for increased collaboration and discovery. However, additional initiatives are needed to further promote the management and sharing of scientific data and ensure that information is quickly available to researchers. This episode highlights the needs, solutions, and challenges of ensuring interoperability of research data throughout the data lifecycle.
Episode 8: Data Sharing and Collaboration
Increasingly, pharma is looking at partnerships and collaborations to increase the velocity of drug discovery and development. Common data sharing platforms are not built to meet lab-specific requirements. In addition to discussing the necessity of simple and secure collaboration, listeners will learn about the dangers of not using proper tools.
Episode 7: Data Standardization
As biopharma research and development continues to transform digitally, the industry as a whole struggles with guidance on how data and relevant metadata are captured, managed, and shared. Typically experimental data are siloed,
Episode 6: Genomic Data Disparities
Sequencing is used to identify novel drug targets and genetically stratifying clinical trial patients, improving the power of precision medicine. However, the global disparity of genomic technologies is increasing. How will this affect drug development, particularly for non-European ethnicities? Why is it important to have a global context for targeted therapies?
Episode 5: Lab of the Future (LoTF)
Life science companies are looking to modernize their research environments and build the Lab of the Future. From early discovery to preclinical research, how can technology help automate the lab and accelerate discoveries?
