by Andrew Anderson, Vice President of Innovation and Informatics Strategy, (ACD/Labs)
ACD/Labs is headed to Boston for the annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo held at the Seaport World Trade Center from Tuesday, April 5th through Thursday, April 7th. Over 3,000 life sciences, IT, and pharmaceutical professionals will gather in Beantown to discuss the emerging technologies and research that is transforming the industry. The conference is made up of 13 educational tracks covering data management, cloud computing, next-gen sequencing informatics, pharmaceutical R&D informatics, and more. Luckily for this year’s attendees, the ACD/Labs team will be on-site, sharing our expertise in what we do best—informatics!
As the newest member of the team, rejoining ACD/Labs as Vice President of Business Development in December 2015, I’m ecstatic to be at this year’s conference alongside my colleagues Sanji Bhal, Graham McGibbon and Larry Brescio. Here’s the latest on what I’ll be up to at the show and where you can find the ACD/Labs team:
- Booth #348: Not only are we gold sponsors for Bio-IT World 2016, ACD/Labs will be exhibiting at booth #348. We’ll be there for all three days, so if you’re attending the conference, be sure to stop by our booth to meet the team, ask questions, and learn all about our latest offerings.
- Case Study Presentation (Wednesday, April 6th at 12:15 PM): I’ll be presenting in the Pharmaceutical R&D Informatics track, which focuses on how to effectively manage and integrate data in all aspects of the R&D process. My presentation will discuss how organizations can enhance their collaboration interfaces with the integration of live analytical data using informatics software. Also, make sure you stop by the Luncheon Presentation hosted by our friends at IDBS. Scott Weiss, senior director of product management, will be reviewing IDBS’ E-WorkBook on informatics in externalization.
This year’s conference is packed with countless informative sessions, and we can’t wait to get to Boston!
