Challenges and Opportunities for the Future
William S. Hayes, PhD
Vice President of Data Science, Applied Dynamic Solutions
William Hayes, PhD Molecular Biology and Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech, is the VP of Data Science at Applied Dynamic Solutions, helping partners find more effective solutions to the big data and information heavy problems facing healthcare, bioPharma and other industries.
He was previously the CTO of Selventa (a personalized healthcare company using Systems Biology and OpenBEL for diagnostics development), Director of Decision Support in Biogen Idea R&D IT, Head of the Library & Literature Informatics Dept at Biogen Idea, and Head of Cross-Discovery Strategic Informatics at AstraZeneca focusing on data/text/image mining technologies and knowledge management. Prior to that he was the Bioinformatics project lead for drug target-focused Text Mining. The expertise in text mining grew out of frustration with large-scale gene promoter analysis projects he performed at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) where time in the library finding support for computational analyses took over 40X the time it took to run the computational part of the analyses. Due to his experience at abusing supercomputing resources from rather large sequence analysis and other computationally intensive projects, he has also been very active in big data, semantic technologies, distributed computing and cloud computing. His background in Aerospace Engineering and structural engineering of jet engines gives him an unusual viewpoint into computational molecular biology and a broad perspective on technical challenges and how to solve them.
Continuing Education Course
Workshop: Overcoming Copyright Complexities in the Biopharmaceutical Industry
Michele L. Ayers and Stephen K. Garfield
Scientific content plays an important role in the business process of a biopharmaceutical corporation from the discovery research stage all the way to post-marketing pharmacovigilance, plus medical communication/information for marketing purposes, and occasionally even product liability litigation. Journal articles, reference books, treatment guidelines, conference abstracts and posters, etc. all need to be readily available for all employees. Awareness of the copyright implication and the best practices in content use and reuse are important factors in making appropriate decisions around the use of copyright protected materials. With an emphasis on all types of scientific content, key issues that affect employees are discussed. During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a Q & A session as well as other interactive exercises. They will also receive a workbook to help with copyright questions long after the workshop has been completed.
1. What is and is not copyright-protected?
2. Fair use in a corporate environment
3. When copyright permission is needed and how to obtain it?
5. Social media concerns
6. Issues specific to the biopharmaceutical industry including open access and text and data mining
Who Should Attend?
Biopharmaceutical professionals at all organization levels and anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of copyright law as applicable in a biopharmaceutical setting.
