Pistoia Alliance Webinar: Data curation as a key element in successful data science strategy – Nov. 18

Date: 2021/11/18 Duration: 01:00:00 Presented by: Frank Schacherer, PhD, VP Products and Solutions, QIAGEN Digital Insights

Join this webinar to learn about how to get there with high-quality, manual curation.

Data science is becoming a key discipline in pharmaceutical research. A successful Data Science strategy requires high-quality structured, integrated data collected from internal sources (for example bioassays) and external sources (literature, patents, drug labels, etc). Manual curation by domain experts is the key approach that allows companies to get from unstructured data spread across thousands of sources to high-quality datasets in order to gain new insights, make discoveries, and speed up drug development.

Curation at scale is a complex process that involves the development of strict protocols and standards, sophisticated infrastructure, and management of a large number of curators. The complexity of manual curation makes it a costly – but necessary – process, and that is why it is so important to get it right. This webinar will explore the processes, best practices, and pitfalls of manual data curation.


  • Key learnings about manual curation best practices from the leader in manual curation based on 20 years of experience in curating biological knowledge and data.
  • FAIRification of Clinical Trial Data at Roche


At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Employ key strategies and avoid pitfalls when curating data to generate high-quality structured knowledge and datasets.
