Please join us for the London Clinical Data Scientists Meet-up! We welcome everyone with an interest in data science, and its applications in health care!

Sharing insights from data to a wider audience is critical for data scientists. We welcome two exciting speakers on this topic: Sebastian Wolf who brings the production of advanced, validated technical reports to non-programmers through the bioWarp rShiny app; and Duncan Clark, co-founder of Kiln and data communication expert, who will present on interactive data visualization and storytelling.

Sebastian Wolf will talk about bioWarp (biostatistical Web-Applications and R Procedures): a Shiny application enabling employees at Roche Diagnostics to create validated reports for regulatory authorities’ submissions.
bioWARP enables people using advanced statistical methods, who cannot program R. It builds a connection to the validated R-packages developed at Roche with an easy to use and elegant user interface. Its modular environment can host an unlimited number of such interfaces. One of its main feature is a module testing homogeneity of a production process by in-house developed equivalence tests. bioWARP's most important feature is the ability to move all statistical evaluations right into PDF reports. These are validated and can directly be used for submission to regulatory authorities.
bioWARP is called the “largest shiny application in the world” by us as it already consists of 16 modules/tools, has over 100.000 lines of code, >500 buttons and interaction items and is growing and growing and growing.

Duncan Clark will present on interactive data visualization and storytelling.
Duncan Clark is cofounder and CEO of Flourish, a platform for interactive data visualisation and storytelling. Flourish grew out of the multi-award-winning work that Duncan and his cofounder Robin Houston produced through their data visualisation studio Kiln for clients such as Google, Guardian, LSE and the UK government. Duncan was previously a data journalist, publisher and author. He worked as a consultant editor at the Guardian, as an executive editor at Penguin Books and Profile. His book, The Burning Question – coauthored with Mike Berners-Lee and written as as honorary researcher at University College London – explores global energy use and climate change.

Look forward to seeing you there!
