This wiki is available to document the progress of the PhUSE Computational Science (CS) working groups and projects. The wiki enables quick,easy and transparent online collaboration. Working groups each have a main page which is the starting page for all Working Group activity.

If you are new to wikis you might want to check out the help section. To get started click on your working group below.

The Working Groups are governed by the Computational Science Steering Committee which provides oversight to the Working Groups.

Optimizing the Use of Data Standards The development and adoption of data standards over the last decade has shown significant promise in improving efficiencies in the product submission and review process. However, there have also been gaps, issues and challenges in the interpretation and use of the standards. This group will identify specific gaps preventing FDA and industry from optimizing the use of standards and collaborate to close those gaps.

Standard Analyses and Code Sharing Leverage crowd-sourcing to improve the content and implementation of analyses for medical research, leading to better data interpretations and increased efficiency in the clinical drug development and review processes.

Non-Clinical Road-map and Impacts on Implementation There is a need to improve nonclinical assessment and regulatory science by identifying key needs and challenges in the field and then establish an innovative framework for addressing them in a collaborative manner. The group created a framework for moving certain projects forward to support nonclinical informatics efforts and to develop specific implementation solutions and SEND.

Emerging Trends and Technologies This emerging technologies working group will be an open, transparent forum for sharing pre-competitive means of applying new technologies and is being challenged with creation of well-defined collaborative projects that will describe, prioritize, assess, and assist advancement of these opportunities. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) semantic web applications, analysis metadata, modeling, simulation, and “The Cloud”.

Semantic Technology This workgroup will investigate how W3C semantic standards can support the clinical and non-clinical trial data life cycle from protocol to submission including the representation of CDISC Foundational Standards in RDF, modeling analysis results, and representing a protocol in RDF.

  • Representing a Clinical Program Design in RDF - This project will develop an RDF information model to capture, retain, reuse and share the design of clinical program.
  • Analysis Results and Metadata - Development of standard models and technical standards for the storage and usage of analysis results data and metadata to support clinical and non-clinical applications.
  • Representing Regulations and Guidance in RDF - This project will valuate the feasibility of representing regulations and guidance documents in RDF. If you are interested in participating in this project, please email us at: CSS-SemanticTechnologies (at) phusewiki.org
  • NEW: Use Cases for Linked Data - The pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and device development industry has long been constrained by two dimensional, row and column, data structures. These two dimensional data structures support multi-dimensional business processes and multi-dimensional data. The additional dimensions are often defined by non-executable, human business knowledge. Knowledge differences or gaps contribute to inefficient and/or laborous business processes. This project will document use cases for linked data in the clinical trial life-cycle.
