New Ways of Generating Insights in Biopharmaceutical R&D

R&D is at the center of innovation in the biopharmaceutical industry. It is both a challenge to – and an opportunity for – leaders in biopharmaceutical R&D IT to understand, encourage and enable this innovation and to bring new methodologies, approaches, capabilities and technologies to support this ever-evolving landscape of R&D strategies. As such, leaders in R&D IT must stay abreast of emerging trends and technologies. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for R&D IT to perform R&D in IT to create new capabilities that once recognized and acknowledged by other IT groups in other functions in biopharma get leveraged further across the enterprise.

At the PRISME Forum Spring 2016 meeting, key industry trends were identified in Cloud, Digital & Mobile Health Technologies, Big Data, and Knowledge Management. The PRISME Forum Fall 2016 meeting will be held in California, close to the hotbed of innovation in Silicon Valley. As such the PRISME Forum is keen to bring insights into these areas of interest as well as exploring some of the collaboration/social technology areas that are prevalent in this location.

Through an engaging agenda with established and emerging companies and technologies, the meeting will – using a variety of approaches – explore new methods of R&D enablement. Likely topics will include data exploration, knowledge creation, health monitoring and management and intelligent collaboration. Leveraging the expertise of venture capitalists, delegates to this Technical Meeting will gain wider insights into additional emerging trends that could be applied to biopharmaceutical R&D to enable insight generation.

A PRISME Forum Technical Meeting Advisory Committee (TMAC) has been established to provide guidance on agenda topics and appropriately qualified speakers. The committee members are listed below:

Martin Leach (Chairman) VP R&D IT Alexion
David Christie VP R&D Informatics Amgen
Kim Smyth Program Director, CTO Office AstraZeneca
Pascual Starink Director, IT Business Partner, Translational and Early Development Celgene
Joel Ekstrom VP Global Life Sciences IT Ionis Pharmaceuticals
Alex Schuleit Senior R&D Business IT Development Manager Lundbeck
Jens Noack Skærbæk Corporate VP R&D IT, Novo Nordisk
Ashok Upadhyay Global R&D IT Leader Otsuka
Brian Ellerman Head of Digital Health Partnering and Innovation Sanofi

The PRISME Forum Technical Meeting Advisory Committee will be looking for qualified speakers to address relevant topics including:

  1. New technologies enabling new ways of managing clinical trials
  2. Emerging trends in R&D/Healthcare IT investment
  3. Digital health approaches and technologies including mobile
  4. Data aggregation, distillation and visualization – including ‘omics’ and Real World Evidence
  5. Knowledge management approaches including computational linguistics and
  6. Application portfolio simplification
  7. Collaboration technologies
