    Big Data & Big Pharma: How Analytics Might Save Your Life

    in Technology

    Long before the tech sector christened almost every type of analytics as big data, the pharmaceutical and biotech industries were heavily reliant on analytics to develop new, safer drugs, and to produce those drugs more efficiently. Big data plays a key role in building upon what we have learned about the human genome, in managing effective clinical trials, in long-term monitoring of drug applicability in real-world healthcare, and in managing the manufacturing process.


    Consider what the use of big data in pharma and biotech companies means to you as a consumer. It means getting the right drug to the right patient at the right time for the right condition. Now, consider what you can learn as a business person -- no matter what industry you are in -- from the analytics techniques, and the data management and data mining concepts pioneered by big pharma.


    Jim Baxter, head of the life sciences practice at Collaborative Consulting, joins All Analytics Radio on Tuesday, May 19, at 2 pm EDT, for a discussion of how pharma and biotech companies finding benefits in big data analytics.

    Literary Diva Presents: Author Joyce Strand!

    in Books

    Join us as we welcome author Joyce Strand and her new book, "The Judge's Story."


     


    About Author Joyce Strand:


    Mystery author Joyce T. Strand, much like her fictional character, Jillian Hillcrest, served as head of corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder. Rather, she focused on publicizing her companies and their products. She is the author of the Jillian Hillcrest mysteries ON MESSAGE, OPEN MEETINGS, and FAIR DISCLOSURE and the Brynn Bancroft mystery HILLTOP SUNSET. Strand received her Ph.D. from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA. She currently lives in Southern California with her two cats, a collection of cow statuary and art, and her muse, the roadrunner.


     


    About the Judge's Story:


    A Superior Court Judge with a passion for social justice as well as the law strives to discover the truth behind the mystery of a robbery-murder in a small California town in 1939.


    When the Judge hears testimony against a 14-year-old teenager, he realizes that the boy participated in a robbery-murder. However, the accused did not actually pull the trigger. But unless the boy identifies his partner, the Judge must sentence him as a murderer, which would result in prolonged jail time. The Judge’s investigator, along with the precocious 16-year-old girl who identified the boy as one of the thieves, explore different approaches to uncover the murderer. In the backdrop of escalating war in Europe, the financial scarcities of the Great Depression, and the Judge’s caseload, their attempts to find justice for the accused boy and unmask the killer lure the Judge and his friends into sordid criminal activities.


     


    Stay tuned and keep it locked.
