Are you confident in the integrity of your data? Every day, hundreds of scientists are generating, analyzing and managing data that form the basis to discover and develop new drugs that patients are waiting for. Laboratory data forms the building blocks of the scientific work, and its quality is critical to crucial business decisions and long term success. Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JLABS (JLABS) and Janssen R&D invite you to take an in-depth look into potential quality risks in research and explore measures to improve data quality in the drug discovery processes.

From emerging startup to big pharma - your company’s reputation, intellectual property protection and decision making depends on high quality data.

Presentations will cover the following topics:

  • Journey to bringing a drug to market
  • Dilemmas in discovery – a workshop
