Staburo @ R/Pharma 2021 Conference
Staburo participated in the R/Pharma 2021 Conference hosted by a committee existing of R practitioners from different companies, universities, and the FDA from the 2– 4 November. The conference took place online due to Covid19.
The conference provided an overview of new and upcoming R packages in the development of pharmaceuticals and discussed the challenges and opportunities of using R in the pharma industry. For example, the admiral package developed by Roche and gsk offers a consistent and CDISC compliant way to generate ADaM datasets in R. Furthermore, the GeneTonic package provides a Shiny application that makes it easier to analyze and visualize transcriptome data and results.
In addition to the usual discussions within the presentations there was also time to exchange views on all statistical and pharmaceutical topics throughout the conference. In this context, attention was also drawn to a statistical YouTube channel, which we would like to share with you.
We are looking forward to participating in next year’s conference where we can hopefully meet the speakers and attendees in real life!
