Sponsored by Linguamatics and QUOSA 

Recorded on April 10, 2012 | DVD or Electronic Version for Purchase: $295    

DAVID MILWARD (Linguamatics)

With the relentless growth in the volume and complexity of scientific research and the competitive advantage to be gained by successfully parsing that information, there is intense interest in the life sciences, and particularly in pharma companies, in the application of novel text and data mining solutions.

In this web symposium, you will hear from Pfizer’s Phoebe Roberts, a leading biopharma expert in the use of text mining tools and workflows. In addition, executives at two leading providers of text mining and literature workflow solutions, Linguamatics and QUOSA, will discuss how their tools are enabling researchers to tactically and strategically identify targets, opportunities, and initiatives to aid drug development and translational research. In particular, you will hear how valuable information can be extracted and linked together from a wide range of document sources, including full text journal articles, electronic medical records, clinical trials, and patents.
