Remote Science in the Era of Social Distancing

By Tim Wesselman on Mar 26, 2020 1:11:50 PM

We’ve all been reminded across various social media feeds how Isaac Newton discovered calculus while “social distancing” during the Great Plague of London or how some of Shakespeare’s greatest works happened while in quarantine. Although the thought of being able to work from home was once a dream we wished for, as Adam Ruben, Ph.D. puts it, science-ing from home isn’t easy.

If juggling your altered home-life alongside the 9-5 work routine wasn’t challenging enough, it’s even more questionable how you can advance your research now that you have limited access to your laboratory, your data and your team.

As we all grapple with the new reality of lockdowns and work-from-home mandates, there’s now a new opportunity re-define what it truly means to do collaborative research and remote science anywhere in the world.

The Value is in Collaboration (not the pipeline)

By Tim Wesselman on Sep 11, 2019 3:38:21 PM

After conversations with thousands of Scientists, there is stunning lesson in their feedback that every Pharma and Biotech manager should internalize: Collaboration is more valuable than the underlying analysis pipelines.

No matter how great the pipeline, if Scientists can’t explore, interpret and consistently collaborate on a common version of the data then the value invested in the experiment is lost, or simply not realized.

Like dark data, the latent insights in these experiments remain trapped. Interestingly, Pharma and Biotech institutions with a deluge of clinical trial and research data are looking for collaboration tools for their Scientists, not the fundamental analysis pipelines. The implications for oncology research, immunology, drug discovery and disease research are significant.
